Gardening for the 21st Century: Designing and Managing Public Gardens for Everyone

Sunday, September 15, 2:00 – 3:30 pm
or
Thursday, September 26, 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Presented by Tom Smarr, Executive Director at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens.

Join us as our new Executive Director gives his inaugural lecture at Jenkins. This illustrated talk will focus on the increasing importance of public gardens for mental healing and positive environmental impact. His examples of smart plant selection and keen design will come from his work at the High Line in New York City and Moss Gibbs Woodland Garden in Louisville, Kentucky, as well as other landscapes he admires. He will then share how these issues parallel the new Site Master Plan that Jenkins is currently developing. Tom will conclude by reviewing some of the goals and stages of the new Jenkins Site Master Plan process, engaging audience members in outlooks for the future.

Free of charge. Registration required.
