Do Your Garden Plants Have a Backstory?


Thursday, February 28, 2019, 7:00pm to 8:15pm


125 Arborway, Hunnewell Building Landscape, Boston

Museums assign value to their collections by understanding each piece’s backstory – for instance, where did it come from, who created/collected it, what does it represent, what feeling does it elicit from a visitor? The plants in our own gardens can and should do the same, but too often have become generic and mundane because we have forgotten their backstories. Perhaps even worse, we may be losing our own personal connections to what we grow. Michael Dosmann will provide his own perspective on how to re-engage with our garden plants in ways that make it personal.

Fee: Free for members, $10 for nonmembers
