Judith to Present at Sophia’s Portico

The city of Fort Wayne has an abundance of groups that support the community in a variety of ways and one of our favorites at JLA is Sophia’s Portico. ” Sophia’s Portico, Inc., established in 1992, is an art and spirituality center focusing on the development of the feminine through education, the arts and earth-based spirituality.” (From their website, you can find here) The art markets that Sophia’s put together are a favorite of JLA employees each year.

This spring on Tuesday, April 16 J. Lynne Associates founder and owner Judith Nastally will give a presentation on the importance and traditional uses of the plants native to Northeast Indiana. She will touch on how these plants can be used to create beautiful landscapes in your home gardens as well as the ways in which Native Americans would use these plants for a myriad of benefits.

Her presentation will be given at Sophia’s Portico located at 2330 Beacon Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46805 from 7:00pm-9:00pm. Admission cost is $15. Come join and support a community of forward thinking gardeners and planters in this beautiful space for an evening full of knowledge and learning!
