Annie Martin, a nationally-recognized moss gardening expert and author of The Magical World of Moss Gardening (Timber Press 2015), offers informative and entertaining lectures, workshops and hikes focusing on the joys and advantages of bryophytes -- mosses. Known as Mossin' Annie, she promotes mosses as viable horticultural choices for sustainable landscapes including new “green” alternatives such as moss lawns, green roofs and living walls. Her "Go Green With Moss" programs introduce innovative approaches for featuring both shade and sun mosses. A PowerPoint program highlights the aesthetic appeal and serenity of a moss garden as well as practical reasons for choosing mosses. Hands-on bryophyte specimens provide an opportunity for participants to examine these fascinating, yet often overlooked, native plants. She blends botanical information with practical perspectives on moss gardening in a manner that captures the heart, mind, and spirit. Programs are offered to garden clubs, botanical gardens, environmental groups, teachers and students. Whether the keynote speaker at a conference or the leader of a children's workshop, her enthusiasm is contagious for all ages.
Through her niche landscaping business, Mossin' Annie creates unique moss features for private gardens or public venues. As a moss artist, her designs reflect appropriate use of moss types with an artistic flair using the myriad of textures, shapes and shades of green emphasizing the connection between nature and spirit. With over 10 years of practical experience and countless hours conducting moss cultivation research, Martin realizes the real test of success is longevity and sustainability. Breaking new ground, she is committed to bridging the information gap between bryology and horticulture.
