<![CDATA[Garden Talk: Margaret Roach on “Non-Stop Plants: A Garden for 365 Days”]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/03/garden-talk-margaret-roach-on-nonstop-plants-a-garden-for-365-days http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/03/garden-talk-margaret-roach-on-nonstop-plants-a-garden-for-365-days Date: April 3, 2013

Postponed from the Winter Lecture Series due to snow, Margaret Roach now helps us welcome spring with her gardening expertise. For more than twenty years she has worked to make her garden a visual treat every day of the year. Meet the plants and the philosophy that make it happen, delivered with a big dose of “horticultural how-to and woo-woo.”

After 15 years at Martha Stewart Living and a decade each at Newsday and the New York Times, Margaret now writes the nationally acclaimed blog “A Way to Garden.” Her newest book, The Backyard Parables, came out in January 2013. “Margaret Roach writes with intelligence, compassion, and most of all—sanity. Her work is a blessing.” — Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert
