Virtual Talk: The Secret World of Philadelphia's Private Gardens

Thu, Jul 11, 2024
2:00 PM- 3:00 PM

Join garden historian Nicole Juday, author of the new book Private Gardens of Philadelphia, as she discusses the character-driven gardens she discovered in writing her book. Using examples illustrated with images from the book’s lavish photography by Rob Cardillo, she will not only highlight how these stunning gardens reflect the personalities and interests of their owners but will also point to examples of how these contemporary landscapes say something about the social, economic, political, and religious influences that have contributed to the incredible richness of horticulture in the Philadelphia region.
