This year’s three lectures illuminate how deeply an intimate garden like Wave Hill is embedded in the larger world of horticulture. Colin Cabot, co-founder of Sanborn Mills Farm, has also been a theatrical producer, musician, philanthropist, entrepreneur and—avocationally—blacksmith and farmer. Located near Concord, NH, Sanborn Mills draws on Cabot’s childhood experience of farming and gardening, focusing on preserving and renewing the skills of our northern New England forebears. Cabot’s talk considers how best to respond to parental achievements in knowing, growing and using gardens, reflecting on 60 years of living in the masterpieces created by his parents, Frank and Anne Cabot.

Wave Hill’s annual horticultural lecture series is held at the New York School of Interior Design. The second lecture of the series takes place on February 20, when Chanticleer gardener Lisa Roper speaks about the design evolution of Chanticleer’s Gravel Garden.
