Digging Deeper Programs
February 23 - Lecture: The Inevitable Garden 11
Alight with lush photographs of fine English and American gardens, The Inevitable Garden is a distillation of what Gordon Hayward has learned over more than three decades of immersion in garden design and gardening as a self-taught designer, writer and lecturer. His conclusion? A garden with soul, clarity, varied emotions, and an unself-conscious design—that is, a feeling of inevitability—is the fusion of three key elements: people, buildings, and land. You will have a new way of seeing and assessing your own garden. Let designer and author Gordon Hayward inspire you for the upcoming gardening season! At Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies Auditorium, 2801 Sharon Turnpike/Route 44, Millbrook, NY 12545 Fee. Book-signing follows. More info here.
