Coming Up

Begun 17 years ago by the Berkshire Botanical Garden, Arborist Day gathers Berkshire arborists and tree specialists for a day of community service, education and recreation. This year’s Arborist Day will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Led by Ken Gooch, this program focuses on factors that affect plant health care, including insects, diseases, pathogens, and abiotic influences. Held Tuesdays, Nov. 29 through Dec. 20, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

As we approach the darkest days of the year, turning inwards with the season serves as a healthy option.

Locusta, languste, lobsters ... say what? Stewart Edelstein, author of "An Alphabetical Romp Through the Flora of Berkshire Botanical Garden: From Agave to Zinnia," goes out on a limb to explain.


Much of what BBG’s Farm and Garden program teaches today’s youngsters targets much of what can be worrisome in these modern times.

The color and life birds bring to my landscape are among the greatest joys of my gardening. Admittedly, I don’t know much about what I am seeing. That’s in the process of changing.

Our notions of beauty and responsibility are ... evolving, to say the least. Welcome to the great transition!
