18th Annual Winter Lecture Series: The Gardener’s Garden

Three Thursdays, January 25, February 22, March 29, 2018; 10–11:30 a.m.

This year’s series stays close to home—and heart—as three renowned garden designers, plantsmen, and environmental stewards take us inside their own personal gardens. As incubators, models, and laboratories, these beautiful spaces integrate wild nature, plantings, and innovative visions, as well as influences and best practices from around the world. Join us as our extraordinary speakers share the ideas and projects that have led them to the gardens they have always wanted.
