Landscape Designer Hannelore Palmer to speak at gallery March 5

The event, which is part of the gallery’s Creative Exchange lecture series, had been scheduled for earlier this month but was cancelled due to Winter Storm Leon. Palmer specializes in low maintenance design and is knowledgeable in all landscape styles, coastal Carolina ecology and deer control. Her presentation titled “Design For the Lazy Gardener” is free, but seating is limited so reservations are requested. Call 910.575.5999 or email: lassiter@sunsetrivermarketplace.com.
