Horticultural Lecture #1 Louis Bauer: Greenwood Gardens
Wednesday, January 22, 2014
6:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m.
This ongoing series is hosted by Wave Hill’s Friends of Horticulture Committee, and is devoted to landscape design and the meaning of our interactions with plants and the natural world.
The opening lecture this season is provided by Louis Bauer, Director of Horticulture at Greenwood Gardens. It’s easy to see coincidences between Wave Hill and Greenwood Gardens, both 28 acres and both former estates with dramatic views, though Greenwood looks out on New Jersey’s South Mountain Reservation. Unlike Wave Hill, Greenwood Gardens has been open for less than a year. The parallels provide a base for Bauer, trained as an architect and a devoted community gardener, to explore the ways a garden can be saved, nurtured and reinvented to inspire a new generation. The second in this series takes place February 19.
Series: $60/48 Wave Hill Member, Student. Individual lectures:$25/$20 Wave Hill Member, Student. Reservations recommended.
