Join us for Gardenlust: A Botanical Tour of the World’s Best New
Gardens. For three years, Chris Woods
traveled the world seeking out contemporary gardens and found fifty of the
best. With wit and humor, he describes the most arresting features in public parks
in exotic locations like New Delhi and Dubai, mission-redefining botanic
gardens in Chile and Australia, and the most enviable details of lavish private
estates and gemlike city yards. Throughout, he reveals the fascinating people,
plants, and stories that make these gardens so lust-worthy. The cafe will be open to purchase dinner prior to the lecture and a complimentary dessert reception and booksigning will follow. This lecture is made possible by a generous gift from the Loveland Garden Club.
June 18, 2020 at 7 p.m. Our garden is our home habitat. For most of us, it's the landscape we spend the most time in. If it's designed to support a great variety of life it will be full of surprise, adding intrigue and interest to every day. Expanding on the subject of The Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity in the Home Garden, co-authored by Rick Darke and Doug Tallamy, this richly illustrated talk will present ideas for the plant selection, design, and care of home and community landscapes that are practical and durable, but also beautiful and joyfully livable. The cafe will be open to purchase dinner prior to the lecture and a complimentary dessert reception and booksigning will follow. This lecture is made possible by generous gifts from the Mae and Lawrence Youngman and Judy and Jim Wigton families.
