(Webinar) Unveiling Ruth Bancroft’s Archives

Saturday, August 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$5.00 – $10.00

Please note that this will be a live, webinar workshop (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the Garden. After registration (see below), you will receive further instructions from the Program Director prior to the workshop date. Registration will close on 28 August 2021 at 8am. For those able to visit the Garden 1-9 September 2021, come explore the riches of Ruth Bancroft’s archives open to the public for the first time in a special exhibit.

Join Susan Van Dyne, docent and exhibit curator, for a special webinar where she will showcase photos of Ruth and the Garden as it evolved from 1972 to her 100th birthday in 2008. We’ll see the birth of the Garden Conservancy, that would preserve Ruth’s garden forever, and the conferences that would expand her influence in dry gardening on an international scale. Learn how Ruth’s life-long habit of recording her daily decisions gave us, over five decades, this astounding achievement.

Participation in this online lecture requires that you use the free Zoom video conferencing service. Click here for a tutorial on how to join a Zoom meeting and much more.

How it works: Register one person with one email at a time. If you would like to register multiple people, please register them each separately with separate emails. Registered attendees will receive a Zoom link by email from the Program Director one day prior to the lecture.  Simply click the link at the webinar start time to join!  The webinar will be recorded and all registrants will receive the recording via email within one business day.  Once the recording is sent, you will have seven days to watch.  After that time, the recording will expire.  Access to the webinar recordings after the expiration date will be a charge of $15 (members)/$20 (non-members).
