I've long admired Tovah Martin's work -- and now you can hear her talk about just what makes a garden great. Join the author, photographer and horticulturalist from 2-4 p.m. Saturday for Begged, Borrowed and Stolen -- Secrets from the Country's Foremost Gardeners, a slide-illustrated lecture at Berkshire Botanical Garden in wonderful Stockbridge, Massachusetts (an easy drive from much of the Hudson Valley.) Cost is $16 for BBG members and $21 for everyone else. Directions and additional info at BBG Web site.
Here is more info about the event from BBG: With her astute observations of gardens and gardeners, Tovah will take participants on a visually beautiful whirlwind tour of some of the most original gardens around. She will share the secrets of the gardeners that made them and how to realize these ideas in your own garden. Whether inheriting an established garden or starting from scratch, learn these simple ways to make a garden yours!
