GARDEN SHOWS AND LECTURES
April 10 - 11 Howe Wild Weekend
Join The Garden Club of Nashville as we celebrate the HOWE WILD WEEKEND, a weekend benefiting The Howe Garden at Cheekwood. In 1968 the Garden Club of Nashville relocated the late Mrs. Harry A. Howe’s wildflower garden, “Wildings,” to Cheekwood and in 2012 the club funded complete renovation of the garden.
This Howe Wild Weekend will feature New York Times best-selling author Amy Stewart as she discusses two of her books, The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the World’s Great Drinks and Wicked Plants: The Plant that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities.
April 10, 6:30 pm
Spring cocktail supper featuring Amy Stewart presenting her book, The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the World’s Great Drinks. Amy will share the dizzying array of herbs , flowers and nature’s bounty that humans have contrived to transform into alcohol over the centuries. Meet with the author for a book signing, bid on an array of fabulous plants from our specialty growers and shop “Art from the Earth,” a select group of garden design dealers.
