(Webinar) History of the Ruth Bancroft Garden

Saturday, September 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$12.00 – $17.00

Long-time curator, Brian K., has worked with the Ruth Bancroft Garden plant collection for 42 years.  Brian was fortunate to have worked with Ruth for decades as the garden took its present form.  In this time, the garden has undergone tremendous changes moving from Ruth’s stewardship to the stewardship of the Garden Conservancy.  Learn how the Garden has evolved over time in this photo-centric historical presentation, where Brian will share images of the garden over the years including seldom-seen, early photos during its construction.
