The Living Landscape- Summer Solstice Lecture featuring Rick Darke- June 24, 2021
June 24, 2021 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.
