With beautiful photos and entertaining stories, Chet Orloff will take us from the gardens of antiquity forward to the great documentary gardens of the 18th and 19th centuries and finally to the gardens of our own Pacific Northwest. He will discuss the work of some of the great names in garden design, including Brown, Jefferson, and the Olmsteds and what they contributed to our current garden tradition.
