The Education of a Young Gardener: A Horticultural Lecture by Coralie Thomas in Manhattan
New York School of Interior Design, 170 East 70th Street, Manhattan
This year’s three lectures illuminate how deeply an intimate garden like Wave Hill is embedded in the larger world of horticulture. Currently a gardener at Great Dixter House and Garden in the U.K., Thomas was a John Nally Intern and an Assistant Gardener, both at Wave Hill, before receiving a Chanticleer Christopher Lloyd North American Scholarship to study for a year at Great Dixter and Chanticleer. She has come to her career as a gardener after undergraduate work in political science, followed by garden and research internships in the Rocky Mountains and Panama City. Thomas’ talk will include a conversation with Wave Hill Senior Director of Horticulture Louis Bauer. Wave Hill’s annual horticultural lecture series is held at the New York School of Interior Design.
Individual tickets: $30, with a 10% discount for Wave Hill Members and students. Seating is limited, and advanced reservations are recommended, online. Student tickets available lecture evening only, at the door, space permitting and with a valid ID.
