Description

Friends of Princeton Open Space and The Garden Club of Princeton present: An Evening with Ken Druse.

On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, Friends of Princeton Open Space, a nonprofit devoted to preservation and stewardship of land in Princeton, and The Garden Club of Princeton, charter member of the Garden of America, will host An Evening with Ken Druse, at the Friend Center, Princeton University. Druse, a celebrated lecturer, award-winning writer, photographer and author of 19 garden books, will discuss his 2015 book, The New Shade Garden: Creating a Lush Oasis in the Age of Climate Change. He’ll plumb the depths of shade once again – 20 years after the publication of his best seller, The Natural Shade Garden. This time, it’s to tackle the challenges that have arisen due to our changing climate. “The low-stress environment of shade (cooler temperatures, fewer water demands, carbon sequestration) is extremely beneficial for our plants, our planet, and us,” says Druse.

He details new ways of looking at all aspects of the gardening process, in topics such as designing your garden, choosing and planting trees, preparing soil and the vast array of flowers and foliage – all within the challenges of a changing climate, shrinking resources, and new weather patterns. Druse knows that the best defense is to create a verdant retreat – of this he says, “The garden of the future will be in the shade.”

An Evening with Ken Druse is free. The number of tickets is limited. Pre-registration via Eventbrite.com is required to attend. For questions about the event, please email info@fopos.org.
