Sprit of Place, a Zoom talk with Bill Noble

October 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm


How does an individual garden relate to the larger landscape? How does it connect to the natural and cultural environment? Does it evoke a sense of place? In addressing these topics in an illustrated presentation based on his new book, Spirit of Place, on Thursday, October 22 at 2 p.m. via Zoom Bill Noble—a lifelong gardener, the former director of preservation for the Garden Conservancy, will help gardeners answer these questions by sharing how they influenced the creation of his garden in Vermont.

Noble reveals that a garden is never created in a vacuum but is rather the outcome of an individual’s personal vision combined with historical and cultural forces of place. He speaks to the guiding principles that have shaped the making of the garden, and will lead us through a tour of its colorful perennial borders as well as quiet nooks of greenery and refuge. His talk will inspire you to create a garden rich in context, personal vision, and spirit. It will be followed with a Q&A session.

This virtual talk via Zoom is free and open to the public. Advance registration is required. For more information please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or, to register, see the Adult Featured Events page on the Library’s website at https://www.youressexlibrary.org/
