Landscaping Camp: May 26-28th, 2017
The Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Foundation Retirement Attraction Program are hosting the “inaugural” Landscaping Camp here in Oxford in late May, featuring Jeff McManus, whose expertise in landscaping has gained The University of Mississippi accolades of being named “The Most Beautiful Campus” by a number of national publications as well in Newsweek 2011 and just recently in USA Today’s Readers Choice competition.
During this 2 ½ day camp each participant will receive two books written by Jeff McManus at the Opening Dinner/Book Signing. Among some of the activities already planned, one will be able to immerse themselves on a tour of the beautiful Ole Miss Campus, while learning secrets from Jeff McManus, attend educational seminars on how to prune your shrubs including choosing the right time, as well as “Creating a Bird-Friendly Landscape,” with Kristin Lamberson from the Strawberry Plains Audubon Center plus receive timesaving tips for a low maintenance yard. In addition, Mr. Peng Lee, former Research Scientist of The National Center for Physical Acoustics, University of Mississippi, will speak on “How To Grow Fig Trees.”
To top it off, three tours will also take place en route via the famous Double Decker Bus to the stunning landscaped homes of Dickie & Dianne Scruggs and Sam & Mary Haskell which are both inspired by McManus, as well as a tour of the beautiful and historical City of Oxford.
