Enjoy a lecture and Q&A session with author Page Dickey about her new book, Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again, available for purchase through the BBG online shop. Page Dickey knew the transitions she faced walking away from her celebrated garden at Duck Hill after thirty-four years. What surprised her were the happy opportunities that came with starting over. Uprooted follows Dickey’s 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. Our Author Series is presented in collaboration with Tower Hill Botanic Garden and Timber Press.
Page Dickey has been gardening passionately since her early twenties and writing about gardening, as well as designing gardens for others, for three decades.
