Gilded Age Gardener

Landscape historian, author and Vineyard gardener Judith Tankard offers a look at the life and work of Beatrix Farrand, one of the foremost landscape designers of the early 1900s, at the Polly Hill Arboretum on Wednesday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Born into a prominent New York family, Ms. Farrand eschewed the social life of the gilded age to pursue her passion for landscape and plants.

Her talk is derived from her latest book, Beatrix Farrand: Private Gardens, Public Landscapes, her seventh book on landscape history.

Admission is $10; $5 for members.
