Drawing from her new garden memoir Cutting Back, Leslie Buck will discuss the natural garden pruning traditions of Japan. She will illustrate how the Japanese use a native plant palate, how the gardens of Japan evoke the wild landscape, and the tricks Japanese garden craftsmen use to design with native plants over time. She will also present photos from her book.
Leslie is a garden designer and aesthetic pruner, who specializes in natural design in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has over two decades of gardening experience, and a fine art degree from U.C. Berkeley and the Bordeaux School of Fine Arts in France. In 2000, Leslie studied with Uetoh Zoen, one of the oldest and most highly acclaimed landscape companies in Japan.
Leslie’s book will be available for sale and signing after the program.

HEARTFULNESS MEDITATION paves the way for overall well-being by balancing one's existence and improving relationships. Come experience the beauty of the heart. Each session consists of two parts:
Helpfulness Relaxation ~ A brief, five-minute guided relaxation technique that helps to relax the body and prepares us for meditation. It also aids us in getting a restful night's sleep.
Healthfulness Meditation ~ By meditating on the heart, we gradually learn to regulate the mind while exploring the unlimited potential of the heart. Continued practice can enable us to reach profound depths of meditation and achieve inner transformation.
You are invited to come to the library's Auditorium for these meditation sessions on Thursday mornings, presented by certified Heartfulness instructors Sandhya Balakrishnan and Shobha Prabala.
