‘Boot Camp for Your Senses’ set Oct. 25
WEST HARTFORD — The Connecticut Horticultural Society will host “Boot Camp for your Senses in the Fall and Winter Garden” with Tovah Martin at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 at Emanuel Synagogue Auditorium, 160 Mohegan Drive, West Hartford.
So much of gardening is focused on the monthly checklists, season to-do lists, and daily upkeep — weed this, plant those seeds, prune this tree, rake these leaves, dig this hole–frantically done all year long. Want to broaden your horizons? After this presentation your garden will be more savory, you will know its touch, smell its aromas, hear its voice, and see it anew.
Martin will lead guests on a journey through the fall and winter garden unlike any you’ve been on before. This lecture explores the garden on all levels by attuning your nose to the scents and training your ears to listen. Learn to garden with eyes wide open, ears to the ground, and hands outstretched.
Martin is an organic gardener and acclaimed garden writer. Her most recent book, “The Garden in Every Sense and Season,” was published this year by Timber Press and will be available for purchase and signing at the meeting. Her articles appear in publications such as Country Gardens, Garden Design, Coastal Home, Martha Stewart Living, and Gardens Illustrated, and she lectures extensively.
The evening will include the society’s annual Bulb Sale, where visitors will find values on old favorites and new bulbs to enhance the garden—or give to a fellow enthusiast.
A drop-in fee of $10 is collected at the door from nonmembers.
