Learn about the evolution of Greenwood Gardens this Sunday!




The Evolution of a Historic Garden: Stewardship, Design, and Direction for the Future
A Lecture by Sonia Uyterhoeven


Sunday, June 12, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.


Gardens are dynamic in nature – sometimes evolving slowly and sometimes moving at a rapid pace. Over the past several years, Greenwood Gardens has made profound changes to the landscape, breathing new life into a historic garden.
Since 1911, Greenwood Gardens has evolved with artistic direction from the Day and Blanchard families, whose visions were quite different from one another. Now, Greenwood is entering a new phase of evolution as a public garden informed by its past and inspired by future possibility. 
On Sunday, June 12 at 3:00 p.m., Sonia Uyterhoeven, Greenwood Gardens’ Head of Horticulture, will discuss the vision and the planning that went into the process of revitalizing the gardens – a process that is continuing to unfold. 

Following the lecture, cookies and iced tea will be served.

Adults only, ages 13 and up; limited to 70 attendees
$20 members; $25 non-members
