The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - COMMUNITY -

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.
