Gardens and More with Landscape Designer Louis Raymond (Tour)

Join landscape designer Louis Raymond for a unique opportunity to tour his personal garden in Hopkinton, RI. This Eat & Speak gives attendees a chance to see his own complex and detailed garden at the peak of its annual cycle. “Gardens for clients, while sometimes astounding in size, concept, and detail, will always be comparatively tame compared to my own. There I’m not limited by typical norms of practicality or sustainability. Client gardens are always in those senses “simple” compared to my own,” Louis says, “which is ever-evolving, ever-revealing. From the standpoint of seeing a designer in his own studio—well, my garden is that space—this is the one to visit.” Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch of their own. Louis and his husband, Richard Ericson, will provide drinks and dessert.
