What: Fort Greene Park Conservancy is proud to sponsor their new horticulture series, Living Landscapes. Each event will focus on horticultural and landscape aspects of Fort Greene Park through presentations given by noted landscape designers, gardeners, authors, illustrators, and specialists.
Rick Darke: Author, photographer, and landscape designer Rick Darke believes the ability to see deeply is the most important skill any of us can bring to the enjoyment, understanding, and stewardship of shared landscapes. Darke's multimedia presentation "The Art of Observation: Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary Landscape" will employ examples of diverse habitats and cultural landscapes to explore the art of observation and the inspiration to be found in celebrating the unprogrammed qualities of everyday places.
Future presenters include: Wendy Hollender, noted botanical illustrator, author and instructor, on Wednesday, June 15th @ 6.30pm, at Fort Greene Park Visitors' Center.
Anne O'Neill, eminent rosarian and gardener, who will speak on Extraordinary Roses for Brooklyn Gardens on Wednesday, July 13th @ 6.00pm at Fort Greene Park Visitors' Center.
