Step back in time and learn how the first woman landscape architect created a business in 1895 that would rival any of her male contemporaries. Beatrix Farrand would create the campus landscapes for some of the most prestigious universities in the U.S. Her garden designs beautified the homes and estates of clients across the country.
John Cilio, historical storyteller, author and researcher will highlight how Farrand prepared for her quest to be a landscape gardener, built a lucrative business and designed gardens as a beautiful canvas. Twelve of her gardens survive across the country and we’ll highlight the three surviving Connecticut gardens that have been restored.
