City Green: Public Gardens of New York
Ladew Gardens
Public horticulture in New York City is rich and diverse. Many public gardens, such as the New York Botanical Garden, the High Line and Wave Hill are well-known. Others remain relatively undiscovered, including Green-Wood, Louis Kahn’s Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, the Chinese Scholar’s Garden on Staten Island, and community gardens that started their lives as dangerous, garbage-strewn empty lots. In addition to a wealth of different design styles that range from traditional to contemporary and naturalistic, public gardens play an increasingly significant role in the quality of urban life. They also reveal a fascinating history, having been nurtured, preserved, and sometimes literally saved by the passionate efforts of individual citizens and visionary gardeners. Jane Garmey is the author of Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley, Private Gardens of Connecticut, The Writer in the Garden, Great British Cooking: A Well-Kept Secret, and Great New British Cooking. She has written about gardens and interior design for Architectural Digest, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Elle Decor, and 1st Dibs, and for many years was the garden correspondent of Town & Country. Born in England, she lives in New York and Cornwall, Connecticut. Jane's latest book will be for sale.

Evening Dinner & Lecture - Restoring Nature’s Relationships at Home with Doug Tallamy
Ladew Gardens
Join us for a special dinner & lecture featuring Doug Tallamy. Ticket price includes garden admission, dinner, and lecture. Specialized relationships between animals and plants are the norm in nature. It is specialized relationships that provide our birds with insects and berries, that disperse our bloodroot seeds, that pollinate our goldenrod, and so on. Native plants, in particular, provide wildlife with their basic needs better than non-native plants can. Tallamy will explain the importance of these relationships and how we can use our home landscapes to improve wildlife habitat and make our landscapes living ecosystems again. Doug Tallamy has been a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware for the past 36 years. He is an award-winning researcher, speaker and author, who focuses on better understanding the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. He is well known for his books Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens and The Living Landscape, co-authored with Rick Darke, which will be for sale.
