Updates about the PAL Summer Arts Festival plans plus a presentation about Color in the Garden from author Lorene Edwards Forkner.

As an avid gardener all her life, in early 2018 Lorene began creating color studies of plants and other artifacts from nature and posting her daily ritual on her Instagram feed — which has grown to over 40,000 followers. Her recent book showcases her daily mindfulness practice and shares the colorful way she views the world.

Come listen to how you can hone your perception, discover hidden hues, and cultivate an expansive view of the world around you through the flowers in the garden. Discover how powerful color can be.

ALSO: There will be a flower bar onsite provided by the Gig Harbor Flower Farmers.


LORENE EDWARDS FORKNER is an author, maker, and speaker whose work centers on exploring the wonders of the natural world. She lives a garden-based life in the Pacific Northwest, specifically in an old house near the beach in West Seattle. This tiny plot is her living workshop and testing ground where she pursues seasonal pleasures, delicious flavors, and often picks from her garden for her creative experimentation. She is the author of several books, including the recent Color In and Out of the Garden from Abrams. Her stories appear in the GROW column in The Seattle Times where she explores the gardens and gardeners of the Pacific Northwest.
