Building a Garden

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Speaker:  Hattie Klotz

Theme:  Building a Garden

Hattie Klotz grew up in a Tudor Home that her parents purchased when it was in ruins. They lovingly restored it room by room and then began tending to the neglected landscape of the surrounding grounds. Now more than thirty years later her ancestral U.K. home, Pashley Manor Gardens hosts the largest tulip festival and was awarded Christie’s Garden of the Year award. The 14 acres garden is set in the rolling hills of East Sussex and hosts a Sculpture Festival, a Rose and Lily week, Dahlia Days and a Kitchen Garden Festival. The kitchen garden was the inspiration for her recently published cookbook From the Garden, which features recipes from the produce of the Pashley Manor Gardens as well as her own farm garden near Wakefield, Quebec. Hattie is also the author of Vertical Gardens, in partnership with garden photographer Leigh Clapp. Her discussion will show us how to build a garden and how her family home’s magical landscape came to be. This will truly be an enchanting evening.
