In addition to writing poetry, Emily Dickinson was an avid gardener. Join Maplewood Garden Club on Monday, November 2, at 7:30 when award-winning author and garden historian Marta McDowell explains how plants and places inspired the iconic poet. Her talk explores Dickinson’s gardens through excerpts from her letters and poems, and historic and modern images of her gardens and conservatory. Marta’s presentation promises to be deeply satisfying and inspirational for gardeners and garden lovers alike. It will follow a brief business meeting and conclude with a live Q&A session. Marta McDowell lives, gardens, and writes in Chatham. She consults for public gardens and private clients, writes and lectures on gardening topics, and teaches landscape history and horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden, where she studied landscape design.
