Connecticut Horticultural Society is thrilled to welcome Page Dickey, who will present “Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again” on June 16 at 7:30pm at Emanuel Synagogue (160 Mohegan Drive, West Hartford) and on Zoom. A Q&A follows the talk.
Page Dickey knew the transitions she faced walking away from her celebrated garden at Duck Hill after 34 years. What surprised her were the happy opportunities that came with starting over. Her talk, Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again, reflects her 2020 book release of the same name. She’ll discuss her evolution from old to new, cultivated to wild, and from one type of gardener to another. It is a story for anyone who has had to begin anew—in gardening or in life.
Page Dickey is a garden writer, lecturer, and designer. She has written on gardening and garden design over the years for House & Garden, House Beautiful, Horticulture, Elle Décor, Architectural Digest, and The New York Times. She is the author of eight books, including Gardens in the Spirit of Place; and the award-winning Breaking Ground: Portraits of Ten Garden Designers. Her first book, Duck Hill Journal, and its sequel, Embroidered Ground, are about Duck Hill in North Salem, New York, where she lived and gardened for 34 years.
The talk is free for members and $10 for non-members.
