We invite you to join us for a self guided garden tour and lecture with Page Dickey.

She has written eight books, including, Gardens in the Spirit of Place, Breaking Ground , Inside Out, Duck Hill Journal and its sequel, Embroidered Ground. Her new book, Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again, describes leaving a beloved garden of thirty-four years, finding a home in the northwest corner of Connecticut, and falling in love with its land.
