ONLINE LECTURE - Friday April 9, 2:30pm via Zoom.

Dr David Marsh, garden historian, will present 'The Opposite of Chelsea: The Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire'. Like Chelsea, Chaumont hosts designed gardens every year, but on a shoestring budget, encouraging recycling and emphasizing the meaning behind the garden. The results are memorable and often humorous.
