19th Annual Winter Lecture Series: The Education of a Gardener

Three Thursdays, January 31, February 28, March 28, 2019; 10–11:30 a.m.

 “I know now that one cannot be taught to design gardens academically or theoretically. You have to learn the ways and nature of plants and stone, of water and soil at least as much through the hands as through the head.” —The Education of a Gardener by Russell Page

There are many points of entry into the gardening life. For some it begins in childhood; some come to it through other disciplines. Three distinguished and passionate practitioners share their philosophies, their stories, and the lessons they have learned along the way.
