Take care of the weekday doldrums and sign up for two stimulating and inspiring webinars from Marin Art and Garden Center!
On Tuesday, October 6 at 5:30 pm, we present this illustrated lecture by historian Victoria Johnson featuring her latest book, American Eden.
In 1801, on twenty acres of Manhattan farmland, David Hosack founded the first public botanical garden in the new nation, amassing a spectacular collection of medicinal, agricultural, and ornamental plants that brought him worldwide praise from the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Sir Joseph Banks, and Alexander von Humboldt.
In this talk, Victoria Johnson takes us back to old New York, when the nation’s founders strolled the city sidewalks and most of Manhattan was a green island.
On Tuesday, October 13 at 5:30 pm we are pleased to offer a virtual evening of conversation between Jennifer Jewell and artist/educator Sasha Duerr, one of the 75 extraordinary women profiled in the book The Earth in Her Hands. With background from the book, and a natural plant-based color demonstration by Duerr, together these two dynamic and inspiring women will explore how we each cultivate the world we want when we put our human love of plants, flowers, and gardens to work addressing some of the issues of greatest concern in our world.
