Enjoy a buffet lunch and a history luncheon as guest speaker Colleen Plimpton presents a special program: Beatrix Farrand, Rediscovered.
Beatrix Farrand (1872-1959) was America’s first female landscape architect and a founding member of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Though overlooked for decades, her work is being rediscovered. Many of her gardens, such as Bellefield in Hyde Park, NY; Hill-Stead in Farmington, CT and Garland Farm in
Bar Harbor, ME, have been restored. This talk is a dramatic, 45-minute, first person presentation of the life, times and work of this distinguished “landscape gardener”.
Colleen considers herself both an educator and an entertainer. Her lighthearted, interactive, informative PowerPoint and show ‘n tell lectures illustrate various aspects of gardening and green living.
She has presented to thousands of people over the past several years, including appearances at the Boston, Chicago, Connecticut and Rhode Island Flower Shows.
Admission for lunch & this very special program is $25.00 with proceeds to benefit the museum.
Reservatios are recommended as seating is limited.
