Talks & Lectures
Enjoy talks relating to the gardens and to exhibitions of contemporary art in Glyndor Gallery. Historical tours and gallery talks take place regularly spring, summer and fall, while a series of Horticultural Lectures is a highlight each winter.
An annual series hosted by the Friends of Horticulture Committee and devoted to landscape design and the meaning of our interactions with plants and the natural world, the 2014 Horticultural Lectures offer the opportunity to hear three distinguished experts in the field. Louis Bauer, former Director of Horticulture at Greenwood Gardens—and appointed Wave Hill's Director of Horticulure in January 2014—explores the ways in which a garden can be saved, nurtured and reinvented. Margery L. Daughtrey, Senior Extension Associate with Cornell's Department of Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology, explores the myths and facts surrounding several new and re-emerging diseases affecting gardens. William Cullina, Executive Director of Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, profiles his 50 favorite"natural mixers," focusing on native woody plants and how best to manage them.
