This workshop will provide participants a unique opportunity to be a part of revitalizing a historic Japanese garden in the Chicago area, the Garden of the Phoenix (formerly known as the Osaka Garden) in Jackson Park. It is divided into three segments tackling small stone applications for pathways and nobedan, aesthetic pruning for specimen trees and moss gardening. Our workshop instructors are John Powell and Hironori Kamoshita (small stone design), Mary Ann Lewis, Greg Kitajima and Grant Foerster (aesthetic pruning), Dale Sievert and Rick Smith (moss gardening).
