The Talbot County Garden Club Announces Its Winter Lecture Series

March 29, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Talbot County Garden Club announces its winter lecture series featuring three exciting guests. All events are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 – 11 a.m.

Author Marta McDowell will present a program entitled “All the Presidents’ Gardens.”

Easton Fire House, 315 Aurora Drive, Easton, MD

The fascinating story of America’s first garden! The eighteen acres that surround the

White House have been an unwitting witness to history–a backdrop for soldiers,

suffragettes, protestors, and activists. Kings and queens have dined there; bills and

treaties have been signed; and presidents have landed and retreated. The front and

back yard for the first family, it is by extension the nation’s first garden.

Marta McDowell lives, writes and gardens in Chatham, New Jersey. She shares her garden

with her husband, Kirke Bent, their crested cockatiel, Sydney, and assorted wildlife. Her

garden writing has appeared in popular publications such as Woman’s Day, Country

Gardening, and The New York Times. She is a regular contributor to the British journal Hortus.

Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at 11 a.m.

Author Carolyn Mullet will present “Tours of European Gardens” via Zoom at the library.

Talbot County Free Library, 100 W. Dover St., Easton, MD

In this slide illustrated talk, Carolyn Mullet draws on her recent book “Adventures in

Eden,” exploring the stories behind personal havens scattered across Europe that she

chose not for their pedigree, but for their owner’s passion and creativity.

Carolyn Mullet is a retired award-winning garden designer who practiced in the

Washington, DC metro area for over 30 years. She received her formal training in

residential landscape design from George Washington University.

Tuesday, March 29, 2023 at 11 a.m.
