Lunch and Lecture

July 18 Wits’ End: The Building of a Gardener’s Garden

Join us as Troy Marden, award-winning garden and floral designer, shares the story of the creation of his home garden, Wits’ End. Troy will describe how he brought a weed-infested garden patch back from the brink and transformed it into a lush landscape, where tried-and-true garden gems grow alongside the newest and most unusual forms of annuals, perennials, tropical, and shrubs. This design and plant-driven discussion will include tips and tactics that the everyday, non-professional can apply to enhance their own home garden. Learn more about Troy Marden at: http://www.troybmarden.com/about.html.

Join us for a Fourth of July celebration unlike anything else in town! We’ll kick off the evening at 6:30 pm with Family Night Out, featuring a “Magic of America” Magic Show. At 8:00 pm, the glow of Bruce Munro’s LIGHT installation will take center stage, and so will some talented musicians: enjoy a trio playing Americana music in the herb garden and a pianist in the mansion playing patriotic instrumental pieces. Cash bar stations will be available, and the party continues until 11 pm. Don’t miss it!
