American Eden: What Our Gardens Tell Us about Who We Are
November 29, 2011
Wade Graham, Designer, Historian, Adjunct Professor of Public Policy, Pepperdine University
Location: Trinity Church, Copley Square
In his book, American Eden, Wade Graham argues that how we design and garden shows more than simply how green are our thumbs. Gardens reveal information about who we are as a nation—where we have come from, and where we might be headed. From ethics to aesthetics, from politics to political correctness, Graham will speak about the history of gardening in America and how it has shaped and been shaped by daily life.
