Event Details

UPDATE AUGUST 15: Seats are still available, and tickets will also be sold at the door of the Church before the 11 AM lecture. Book one online here, or there in person. 

"The garden of the future will be a shade garden,” proclaims author and photographer Ken Druse in his latest book, “The New Shade Garden.” And that’s not just because there are now so many plants to choose from that grow in a lower-light environment.

The selection is unlike in the early 1990s, when Ken published his first big shade-garden book and most people knew maybe two, hostas and astibles. Then, gardeners cursed shady areas of their yards as a liability to be eliminated instead of a refuge to be celebrated and expanded upon. Today, in an era of shifting climate, the shade looks more inviting than ever, and we may wish to create more. 

Learn about making shade gardens with great plants in Ken's 11 AM lecture from his new hit book at Church of St. John in Wilderness, Copake Falls NY.

Ken has been called the “guru of natural gardening” by “The New York Times."  He will also give an afternoon garden photography workshop (separate ticket; order at this link). 

Read more about the new book in this interview of Ken with Margaret Roach.
