If you are a moss lover or native plant enthusiast, here’s your chance to experience a “once in a lifetime opportunity” in one of the most impressive moss gardens in the United States. Created in the 1960s by Asheville landscape design architect, Doan Ogden, the Kenilworth Moss Garden exemplifies ways that mosses can be featured in today’s landscapes. Yet, it needs a bit of sprucing up to showcase its moss magnificence. Whether you are an aspiring moss gardener or already a successful moss gardener on your own, join Mossin’ Annie, nationally-recognized moss gardening expert, in restoring this moss landscape to its original glory in preparation for an upcoming community special event.

A native of Asheville, NC, Annie Martin is the author of The Magical World of Moss Gardening and a licensed NC Landscape Contractor. She will provide valuable guidance in maintaining and restoring moss lawns, paths and focal features. Hands-on instruction will include basic maintenance activities and the repair of mossy areas that have been impacted by critter damage. Demonstration of best methods for planting moss colonies and utilizing moss “frags” will be included in the workshop. Through participatory education and professional guidance, Mossin’ Annie will lead participants through this interactive learning process.

Important: ALL moss workshop attendees will participate in intensive maintenance duties for four hours. Participants must be able to sit, kneel and move while performing gardening activities without special accommodation.
