Trowels & Tomorrow: Garden Stewardship with Tovah Martin at Woodbury Public Library on Saturday, April 28th : 2:00 p.m.
Tovah Martin is an author and a perennial, heirloom, vegetable and cottage gardener of fanatical proportions, who has recently earned her accreditation from NOFA as an Organic Land Care professional.
She sums up this particular lecture with the following:
“ The beauty of gardens is that they mature. This is a lecture about horticultural preservation, stewardship, and how gardeners grapple with change. We address the challenges of bringing landscapes into the next generation. Whether you have inherited a landscape or created a garden over decades and now face mature trees and shrubs that require preemptive pruning or relocation, we explore issues and answers. We look at woodland gardens and grand estates, we explore gardens great and small. We tackle such sticky wickets as rehabilitating overgrown boxwood hedges and coping with plants that were once considered exotics but have now been unmasked as invasives. This is a lecture about bringing yesterday’s gardens into tomorrow. But we also talk about plant preservation and heirloom varieties, honoring the people who have worked to preserve vintage ornamentals so those plants with a past can become the superstars of future gardens.”
