Please Join The Trustees for a lively and compelling talk: Why Public Gardens? by noted landscape designer W. Gary Smith, on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 10AM at The French Cultural Center, 53 Marlborough St. in Boston.

Smith, a designer who creates meaning and artful encounters between people, plants, and the natural world, will present his recent work in public gardens that invite broad audiences for exploration and discovery, and will discuss the Public Gardens initiative at The Trustees.

His recently completed projects include the Luci and Ian Family Garden at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, the John C. Wister Rhododendron Garden at Tyler Arboretum, and Ojos y Manos, the ethnobotanical garden at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. Projects currently in design or construction include the Will C. Curtis Woodland at Garden in the Woods, a new children’s garden at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden, and a master plan for the Toronto Botanical Garden.
