It was back in our May “Fascinating Flora” issue that we introduced readers to the work of award-winning landscape designer Frederico Azevedo.
We offered a sneak peek at “Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo,” the first book by the designer, written along with Camille Coy, and set to be released the following month by Pointed Leaf Press.
Now, we’ve heard the Hamptons-based designer will be in our area soon, the featured guest of the Nov. 20 “Lunch & Learn” event at the Greenwich Botanical Center.
Here’s how the organization is advancing the program:
“Creating a landscape involves weaving intentionality into the unpredictability of nature in a way that creates something new, something that is live in a different way.” – Frederico Azevedo
“Meet famed Brazilian landscape designer Frederico Azevedo, the owner of Unlimited Earth Care based in Bridgehampton, New York.
“Frederico will be introducing his new book, available for sale and signing: “Bloom: The Luminous Gardens of Frederico Azevedo” from Pointed Leaf Press. He will discuss the methodology behind his design concepts and present a selection of images showcasing his magnificent gardens.
“Frederico Azevedo was born in Brazil and studied landscape design in Brazil, England and the United States. Azevedo founded Unlimited Earth Care, Inc. in 1993, to create beautiful, sustainable landscapes. He is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the American Horticultural Society and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons. Azevedo divides his time between the Hamptons, New York City, Los Angeles and Miami, and travels abroad frequently.”
Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. A lecture and presentation, followed by a Q&A, will get underway at 10:45. Lunch will cap the event, which concludes at 12:45 p.m. Tickets are $75 ($50 for members). The Greenwich Botanical Center is at 130 Bible St. in Cos Cob.
