2016 Horticultural Lectures

An annual series hosted by the Friends of Horticulture Committee and  devoted to the subject of garden design and the meaning of our interactions with  plants and the natural world, the 2016 Horticultural Lectures offer the opportunity to hear three distinguished women in the field—Quill Teal-Sullivan, General Manager at Meadowburn Farm, formerly the gardens of Helena Ely; garden writer Marta McDowell; and Katherine Tracey, co-owner of Avant Gardens, a nationally known mail-order nursery and garden design/build firm in Massachusetts. Wave Hill Horticultural Lectures are held at the New York School of Interior Design in Manhattan.
