Slideshow – 2014 North American Japanese Garden Association Conference

We reminisce on those four days of learning, doing, meeting old and new friends in the Japanese gardening community, ¬†and seeing four beautiful Japanese gardens in the Chicago area in their autumn glory: Sansho-en at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Garden of the Phoenix in Chicago’s Jackson Park, Anderson Japanese Garden and Rosecrance Garden in Rockford, Illinois.

Around 200 delegates from USA, Canada, Japan and the United Kingdom got together in Chicago last October 15 to 18 to attend workshops and listen to lectures on design and horticulture, health and wellness in the garden, Japanese garden history, business practices and educational programming.
