Join award-winning international landscape designer Tom de Witte for a rare public talk in the United States. Tom’s projects span the globe–from his home in the Netherlands to Tokyo–and range from intimate private gardens to notable public spaces. His work is deeply influenced by his lifelong love of plants and long-term collaboration with Piet Oudolf, renowned landscape designer, author and leading figure of the New Perennial movement.

Tom will spotlight three projects–including his own home garden–to shed light on his design principles, his collaboration with Piet and lessons learned when moving designs from paper to earth. After the lecture, mix and mingle with Tom and fellow garden enthusiasts at a light reception to talk about plants, design and more.
