Springfield Museums Events April 2014
Special Presentation & Book Signing - Nonstop Plants: A Garden for 365 Days
April 5th, 1:00 pmMichele & Donald D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts
Expressions commonly heard each September like "the season's almost over" don't sit well with Margaret Roach. She has worked for more than 20 years to make her garden in the Hudson Valley-Berkshires area a visual treat every day of the year. Meet the plants and the philosophy that make it happen, delivered with a dose of "horticultural how-to and woo-woo."
About the Presenter
Roach, after 15 years at Martha Stewart Living and a decade each at Newsday and The New York Times, now writes the nationally acclaimed blog A Way to Garden and is author of the 2011 corporate-dropout memoir, And I Shall Have Some Peace There, about walking away from "success" for a quieter life lived closer to nature. Her newest book, The Backyard Parables (published January 2013) blends garden memoir and how-to advice.
