For three years, Christopher Woods traveled the world seeking out 21st century gardens and found fifty he considers to be the best. Featured in his book, Gardenlust (Timber Press, September 2018), these include arresting public parks in New Delhi and Dubai, mission-redefining botanic gardens in Chile and Australia, as well as lavish private estates and gemlike city yards. Join Chris for this very special afternoon when, with his discerning eye and trademark wit, he describes the fascinating people, plants, and stories that make these gardens so lust-worthy. Chris is perhaps best known for his work at Chanticleer, the acclaimed, 47-acre “pleasure garden” in Wayne, Pennsylvania, where he was director and chief garden designer for twenty years.

A book sale and signing will be held after the lecture.

Advance registration is strongly suggested and space is limited.
