Winter Lecture Series – Timothy Tilghman
February 24 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
$20 – $65
We are excited to announce our much anticipated winter lecture series, presented on three Sundays in February, March, and April at noon. This year’s theme is New Perspectives, as we hear from a new generation of gardeners at established public gardens, and how these young horticulturalists are transforming their institutions.
On Sunday, February 24, we look forward to hearing from Timothy Tilghman, Head Gardener of Untermyer Gardens Conservancy in Yonkers, New York, as he discusses Untermyer Gardens: Past, Present and Potential. Tilghman, who has a BS in Plant Science/Ornamental Horticulture started at Untermeyer eight years ago and is now joined by a staff of six. Previously he held positions at Wave Hill and Rocky Gardens and was a senior garden editor at Martha Stewart Living. Tilghman has led an ambitious garden restoration program at Untermeyer transforming a “forgotten” masterpiece of the early Twentieth century into a must-see garden.
All lectures will take place in the summer studio with a reception to follow.
