WORKSHOPS

Workshops

The Conversation Garden Workshop
( 2 or 4 hours)

Join Lynn for a unique interactive workshop where you’ll learn how critical conversations are, what happens when we don’t have them, and how to create a space that is both physically and emotionally safe and comfortable where conversations flow and relationships grow both at home and at work. And that’s just Part One! Part Two includes a tour through several Conversation Gardens where you’ll learn how to recognize the 5 Key Components of a Conversation Garden while enjoying conversations with others. You’ll wall away inspired and ready to transform your life through conversations. 

This workshop can be modified and customized for indoor experiences, as well as for other locations.

Landscape With Intention
(2 hr)

Join Lynn as she teaches her system for how to arrive at the WHY of a garden or landscape, and the steps that follow to. Knowing your WHY is the very first step. Then, the WHAT of the garden can be considered, followed by the HOW. When we landscape with intention, we can create a functional and beautiful result. 

I love to partner with professional workshop facilitators to design a memorable experiences for their clients and team members.

 

As a conversation designer with a background in landscape architecture, I create indoor and outdoor spaces designed specifically for conversations, as well as help you design the conversation itself. The process starts with a Discovery Questionnaire.

 

Together, we can help your client get closer to their goals. 

 

This process looks like this…

It’s my dream for every home, non-profit, municipality, business, and corporate campus to have one or more Conversation Gardens.

A Conversation Garden can be designed from scratch, tucked into an existing space, or a series of Conversation Gardens can be incorporated into a larger project. Every client and situation is unique, just like the conversations that will take place there.

 

Below are several ways I can help you create a Conversation Garden for various situations. 

  • You might need coaching so you can create one for yourself or an organization you care about.

  • You may want to create a temporary pop-up Conversation Garden for a special event at your residence, place of business or venue.

  • You may want an indoor Conversation Garden if you live in a cold climate. 

  • You may need me to guide you through the entire process from conceptual design to installation. 

  • You may be a design professional that needs help incorporating a Conversation Garden into your design.
