New Perspectives Winter Lecture Series – Timothy Tilghman

February 24, 2019 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We are excited to announce our much anticipated winter lecture series, presented on three Sundays in February and March 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. Tilghman has led an ambitious restoration of one of the most celebrated gardens in America of the 1920s and 30s, impressing garden lovers and drawing in new audiences with its brilliant design, while returning Untermyer to its original splendor and beyond through his new vision and horticultural expertise.

All lectures will take place in the summer studio with a reception to follow.

Brusendorf is the newly-appointed Director of Outdoor Landscapes at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, and formerly head gardener at London’s Inner Temple, a position she held beginning in 2007.

  • Madoo Winter Lectures

    The Madoo Conservancy was proud to host a series of three lectures exploring landscape architecture and our waterways. The talks were led by leading landscape architects who discussed current projects and their experiences working in our delicate environment. With bays, ponds and the ocean the East End of Long Island is a unique environment that development has degraded. However, landscape architecture can lead the way to improving our water quality issues with good design.
    Each Landscape Architect was joined by Rachel Gruzen, MEM, LEED AP an environmental planning consultant and educator for a lively discussion on landscape design and the environment within the regional context of a changing East End. Ms. Gruzen most recently coordinated The Peconic Estuary Protection Committee, an alliance of eastern Long Island municipalities and agencies addressing water quality in the Peconic Estuary. We discussed design solutions and good practices to alleviate the stressors on our local ecosystems that can be put in place by residents and designers.

    The talks took place in our recently restored 1740 barn and be followed by a reception in the adjacent summerhouse.
