Renowned garden designer and writer, Page Dickey, will offer a presentation Some of My Favorite Gardens and Why.
Page will show and describe a variety of private gardens in the U.S. and in Europe that especially appeal to her because of their strong sense of design, atmosphere, or spirit of originality. She ends with some pictures of her own garden which is a favorite simply because it is hers.
Page has been gardening passionately since her early twenties, and writing about gardening, as well as designing gardens for others, for the last three decades. She has written seven books and edited another. Most of her books concentrate on aspects of garden design such as creating gardens that reflect their settings or planning gardens as extensions of our homes, in each case illustrated by exceptional examples around America. Page lectures around the country about plants and garden design, and has written many articles for magazines over the years, including House and Garden, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Horticulture, Elle Décor, Garden Design, and The New York Times.
She serves on the Board of the Garden Conservancy and is one of the two founders of its Open Days Program. She also serves on the Boards of Stonecrop Garden in Cold Spring, NY and Hollister House Garden in Washington, Page was recently elected as an Honorary Member of The Garden Club of America.
