TBG Lecture Series

The TBG is proud to present an evening lecture series, generously supported by The J.P. Bickell Foundation and Tim & Frances Price, showcasing international and local presenters from various corners of the horticulture world sharing images, stories and insights on current and seasonal themes.

Two Forces of Nature: Weather and Women
For the past 30 years, historian and garden conservator Mark Laird has been changing the way historic gardens in England are restored and replanted. In his lecture, Mark will emphasize the historic role of women in gardens and will illustrate how the environmental focus of his new book A Natural History of English Gardening (2015) is being applied to garden conservation.
