HPSO: Time and the Garden: Lessons from a Quarter Century with Rick Darke

Whether new or old, big or small, a garden changes with every day, week, season, and year. This ever-changing nature makes gardens endlessly challenging and infinitely rewarding. In this illustrated lecture Rick Darke presents insights and lessons he’s learned from tending the same acre-and-a-half home garden in Landenberg, Pennsylvania, for more than 25 years.

Rick Darke is a Pennsylvania-based design consultant, celebrated photographer and award-winning author. Rick’s work is grounded in an observational ethic which blends art, ecology, and cultural geography in the design and stewardship of livable landscapes. A distinguished alumni of the University of Delaware and former Curator of Plants at world-famous Longwood Gardens in southeastern Pennsylvania, Darke has travelled extensively around the world.
