Maplewood Garden Club Speaker’s Program Via Zoom

How does an individual garden relate to the larger landscape? How does it connect to the natural and cultural environment? Does it evoke a sense of place? Bill Noble—a lifelong gardener and the former director of preservation for the Garden Conservancy—will address these topics on Monday, February 1, at 7:30 p.m. During his slide presentation, “Spirit of Place, the Making of a New England Garden,” which is based on his new book of the same title, he will help gardeners answer these questions by sharing how they influenced the creation of his garden in Vermont. Noble will explain that a garden is never created in a vacuum but is rather the outcome of an individual’s personal vision combined with historical and cultural forces of place. He will also speak to the guiding principles that have shaped the making of the garden, and will lead us on a tour of colorful perennial borders as well as their quiet nooks of greenery and refuge. His talk will inspire you to create a garden rich in context, personal vision, and spirit. It will follow a brief business meeting and conclude with a live Q&A session.
