SUSAN LANGWORTY  ~  HISTORY OF GARDENS

Calling on all gardeners and history lovers! Join us on a walk through centuries of Western gardens. It begins with ancient Roman gardens and ends with observations on the future direction of gardening.  Enjoy a fast-paced visual presentation interlaced with the presenter’s personal anecdotes. These are based on Susan’s five years in Rome and Florence while completing graduate work in Art History.  Leave with a sense of continuity and perspective that runs through this rich history of gardens. Be better able to appreciate gardens that you visit in the future, and, perhaps, take this knowledge into your own garden and landscape design.
