About this event

Join us on Monday, June 7 for Rehabilitating a Historic Garden: Preserving Living History at Shakespeare's Head, a free virtual presentation by Landscape Architect Elena Pascarella, PLA, ASLA, part of our Festival of Gardens public programming.

What is a cultural landscape and why do they matter? Landscape Architect Elena Pascarella discusses these questions and more in relation to PPS’s own Colonial Revival garden behind the building known as Shakespeare’s Head (the John and Amey Carter house). Pascarella’s firm, Landscape Elements LLC, recently completed a Cultural Landscape Report for this PPS urban garden, one which considers historic character, climate change, sustainability, and visitor access to this 80-year-old garden in need of refreshing. Elena will present her findings and treatment recommendations in this engaging talk about a hidden jewel of a garden in downtown Providence.
