Farmington Garden Club presents Page Dickey on Founders Day-March 13

Page Dickey, gardener, writer, speaker, will be our guest speaker for the March 13 at 1pm for the Founders Day event, co-sponsored with the Farmington Public Library. She will speak in the main meeting room of the library at 1pm. The event is free.

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 eight books and edited another. Most of her books concentrate on aspects of garden design such as creating gardens that reflect their settings. Duck Hill Journal and Embroidered Ground are about Duck Hill where she lived for thirty-four years, about the process of making the garden there, and her thoughts on gardening in general. Page was the editor of the book Outstanding American Gardens, celebrating 25 years of the Garden Conservancy with photographs by Marion Brenner. Her new book, Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again, describes leaving a beloved garden of thirty-four years, finding a home in the northwest corner of Connecticut, and falling in love with its land.

In 2015, Page and her husband Bosco Schell moved to Falls Village, Connecticut, to an old church with 17 acres of fields and woods and a view of the Berkshire foothills. They are off on a new gardening adventure.
