Page Dickey has been gardening passionately since her early twenties and writing about gardening, as well as designing gardens for others, for three decades.

Dickey will discuss her new book, Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again with the Essex Library community on Wednesday, October 14 at 7 p.m. In Uprooted, she describes leaving  Duck Hill–a beloved garden of thirty-four years, finding a home in Falls Village, CT and falling in love with its land–17 acres of fields and woods and a view of the Berkshire foothills. Page lectures around the country about plants and garden design and has written for House and Garden, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Horticulture, Elle Décor, Garden Design and The New York Times. She serves on the boards of the Garden Conservancy; Stonecrop Garden in Cold Spring, NY; Hollister House Garden in Washington, CT and The Little Guild in Cornwall, CT and is a member of the Friends of Horticulture at Wave Hill.
