MY 2011 EVENTS CALENDAR looks a little different from previous years—at least so far. The late winter, usually a sleepy, housebound time, is loaded with garden lectures and readings from my upcoming book that you may want to know about.
I’ll be roaming the Northeast in the early going, in places as close to home as the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Hudson Valley of New York, but also across Massachusetts and as far as New Hampshire, Maine, New Jersey and coastal Connecticut. Events here in the garden will begin again in April; stay tuned for a fuller schedule of those, with just the first couple mentioned below.
What’s planned already:
Saturday, February 19, 2 PM: Lecture to benefit Berkshire Botanical Garden, Monument Mountain Regional High School, Great Barrington, MA.
