|Taniguchi Japanese Garden. Austin, TX|
Join us July 13th, 10 am to 12 pm at the Austin Area Garden Center in Zilker Botanical Garden and take a trip to gardens around the world without even leaving Austin. Dr. Molly Ogorzaly contrasts Western and Eastern gardening traditions and explains how religious beliefs influenced the conception and construction of Japanese gardens.
Dr. Ogorzaly, who holds degrees in agriculture, botany and science education, will share design principles and identify adapted plants that can be used in Central Texas. These designs and plants are featured in Austin’s Taniguchi Japanese Garden, which opened in 1969 and was built by Isamu Taniguch.
This great gift to the city is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary. Over these many years, visitors have enjoyed a tranquil, meditative spot in the middle of Zilker Botanical Garden.
