Lee Schneller Sligh will present a program on “Japanese Gardens” at the next meeting of the Garden Club of Wiscasset on Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. in Fellowship Hall at the First Congregational Church, 28 High Street in Wiscasset.  It will feature photos from recent trips to Japan as well as some pictures from gardens Sligh has built in Maine.

Sligh earned degrees in Chinese language and Asian history, studied in China and lived in Japan for four years. She worked as a Japanese technical translator for 10 years before founding Lee Schneller Fine Gardens  in Camden. She attended the Kyoto University of Art and Design Seminar on Japanese Gardens in 2003.  Lee also wrote a best-selling book on continuously blooming garden design called "The Ever-Blooming Flower Garden: A Blueprint for Continuous Color."

Refreshments are served after the program and the public is invited free of charge.  If the Wiscasset schools are closed due to weather, the meeting is cancelled.
