FRED gardening symposium set for Sept. 21 in Riverside
RIVERSIDE – Gardening enthusiasts and and green thumb newbies will have a chance to learn from a number of landscape architects and designers at the FRED (Frederick Law Olmsted Riverside Education and Design) day-long garden symposium Sept. 21.
Riverside is known for its outdoor spaces, many of which were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, a 19th century American landscape designer.
“Riverside, I like to think of it as the first conservation community in America,” said FRED co-chair Cathy Maloney. “Because Olmsted designed it with all native plants, with 50 percent green space and so forth. Part of what we try to do with these design seminars is [promote] sustainability and conservation.”
