If you have ever wondered about the stories and secrets behind some of the Northeast’s most inspired gardens, then this presentation by author and garden designer, Jack Staub, is something you will want to come to.
Private country gardens have long married the artistry of man with the beauty of nature. Join Jack Staub on a visual garden tour through twenty-one superb private country gardens in Virginia, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts, each with a unique story to tell. This lecture is based on his latest book ‘Private Edens: Beautiful Country Gardens’. From a romantic garden that pays homage to the best of English garden vernacular, to a historic farmstead, to a splendid Maryland-meets-Himalayas Eden of transcendent serenity, these garden paradises are inspirational on their own terms and together offer up the breadth and depth of what we can all achieve with a little respect for nature and a bit of imagination.
The lecture and slide show will take place on Wednesday, August 7, at 4, at the Berkshire Botanical Garden. Advanced registration is preferred. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 413-298-3926.
