Join an online workshop with Public Garden Designer Ronda Brands and travel through the 8+ decades of the Heather Garden’s evolving landscape. Starting with the Olmsted Brothers planting plan for John D. Rockefeller, Jr. in the 1930s, through the 1950s, into the fiscal crisis of the 1970s and beyond into the present day. Learn which plants were selected for placement in the Heather Garden and the planning decisions involved; and how increased knowledge of invasive species and a desire for year-round interest, color, and contrast helped the garden evolve into a world-class horticultural destination.
