On Thursday, June 2, Kentucky Native Cafe hosts "Thinking outside the box.....wood?" This discussion with John Michler on the making of garden spaces will begin at 7 pm.
"The Michler family created an urban oasis when they opened Kentucky Native Cafe in their 115 year old Florist, Greenhouse, and Landscape design business in the historic Aylesford district of downtown Lexington. Arrive early or stay late and enjoy wine, local craft brews, and seasonal foods in the acclaimed beer garden. John Michler will discuss the issues involved with creating this garden in the city which has a tranquil and “wild” feeling, yet accommodates the practical aspects of the outdoor cafe. Topics will include the use of natural stones, path layout, manipulating the topography, preservation of existing plants, and allowing for the spontaneous growth of naturally occurring native plants. Bicycle and car parking is easily accessed from 446 E High St." "
