LITERATURE INTO ART: Books That Changed the Way We Garden
with Cole Burrell
In today’s fast paced information age, it is hard to imagine a time when gardeners relied on books rather than YouTube videos for inspiration and practical advice. This lecture examines the shifting roles that gardens have played in our culture, from Victorian bedding schemes to richly planted borders and outdoor living rooms. Join author and landscape designer C. Colston Burrell as he profiles influential garden and nature writers and highlights some seminal books, from William Robinson's Wild Garden to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and Doug Tallamy's Bringing Nature Home, that changed the way we envision, design, plant and maintain outdoor spaces.
Also available, a private garden reception preceding his presentation. Contact the Garden Club of Ramsey County for more information. www.ramseygardeners.org
Colston's books will be available for purchase. Join us after the presentation for a book signing.
