Dr. Dirt & Felder Rushing for March Meeting
When: Tuesday, March 13, 7:30pm
Where: Old Constitution Firehouse on the corner of Main and Openwood Streets in Downtown Vicksburg
What: Yard Art, Dr. Dirt and Felder Rushing
The March 2007 meeting of the Vicksburg Art Association is scheduled for Tuesday, March 13, 2007, at 7:30 pm in the historic Old Constitution Firehouse on the corner of Main and Openwood in Downtown Vicksburg.
A big success in the past, the Yard Art program is returning March 13th at 7:30pm with Dr. Dirt (aka Leon Goldsberry) and Felder Rushing, known in the South for their unique, off-beat approach to horticulture and bringing art to the yard. The pair has been providing gardening advice on Mississippi Public Broadcasting every Tuesday for the last couple of years and is referred to as the Gestaldt gardeners. Dr. Dirt lives in Edwards in a house built by his ancestors in 1895 and a garden that contains plants that may be over 90 years old. His garden is designed as a series of rooms, each stuffed with perennials, flowering shrubs, potted plants and rooting beds and found art that complements the riotous flowering scenes. Felder Rushing, a Masters graduate of Mississippi State University and former state consumer horticulturist with the Extension Service has published over 15 gardening books and lectures across the country at renowned garden meetings and shows. The two promise to entertain us with their down-home style, zany humor and anecdotes, provide some gardening advice and challenge us to take a new look at found art for our gardens.
There is no charge and the public is encouraged to attend. For additional information, call or e-mail Zan Baggett (firstname.lastname@example.org).
