The theme for Madoo’s 2019 Winter Lecture Series is New Perspectives, as we hear from a new generation of gardeners at established public gardens, and how these horticulturalists are transforming their institutions. All lectures will take place in the summer studio with a reception to follow.
On Sunday, March 24, Andrea Brunsendorf will present “Gardening in Two Worlds”—sharing her transition from working in and managing a historic garden in the United Kingdom to overseeing and influencing the Outdoor Gardens at Longwood Gardens in the United States. As Director of Outdoor Landscapes at Longwood since March 2018, Andrea explores how she approached the Gardens and its horticultural practices with fresh eyes, her perspective on environmental sensibility and its relationship to horticulture, and her experience of being an agent of change.
Andrea Brunsendorf is an internationally trained horticulturist, having studied in gardens around the globe, including South Africa, Germany, France, Botswana, Jerusalem, and the United States. Before joining Longwood Gardens in March 2018 as Director of Outdoor Landscapes, Andrea spent 10 years reinvigorating Inner Temple Garden, a historic garden in Central London, known for its successional and innovative planting designs. She holds degrees in Ornamental Horticulture from Thuringian State Ministry in Germany, in Botanical Horticulture (Kew Diploma) from the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, and a Master of Science in Conservation from University College London. Other training includes an internship at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in South Africa and the International Gardener Training Program at Longwood Gardens.

Enea received numerous gold and silver awards at the Giardina show in Basel and Zurich and in 1998 a significant certificate of merit at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in London. A hallmark of Enzo Enea’s projects is the fusion of outdoor and indoor spaces. In 2010, one of Enea’s most noteworthy projects, the Tree Museum, officially opened its gates to the public. Situated on breathtaking land near Upper Lake Zurich in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, the Tree Museum exhibits individual trees from the collection of Enzo Enea as well contemporary sculpture, combining landscape, botany, art, architecture, and design.
