1pm Tutorial: Eileen Anders Topic: Planting Winter Seeds

2pm Speaker: Louis Bauer Topic: Nature into Art, The Gardens of Wave Hill

About the speaker:  Louis Bauer is the Senior Director of Horticulture at Wave Hill, a NYC public garden in the Bronx.  Previously, he worked as the Director of Horticulture at Greenwood Gardens, a century old garden in Short Hills, NJ, where he oversaw the landscape aspects of its restoration.  Louis has appeared as a guest on GardenSmart, segments of Martha Stewart’s television show, and recently offered gardening tips on Margaret Roach’s podcast. 

                                                

About the topic:  Wave Hill, a world-renowned public garden, not only boasts a classic horticultural craftsmanship, but also embraces a design spirit that is daring and innovative.  In this talk, Louis Bauer will explore the different areas of the grounds- the flower garden, shade border, wild garden,  conservatory, and more- and provide helpful information on the plants, techniques, and design choices that define this iconic space.
