REGION: Northeast and Adjoining Canada

Thursday, January 28, 6:00 – 7:30 PM

The Northeast is home to the country’s oldest public gardens, from vast estates to diverse naturalistic areas. And believe it or not, the first public gardens were cemeteries with parks and pleasure drives! Boston’s expansive Mount Auburn Cemetery is certain to inspire, juxtaposed with The High Line in Manhattan, one of the world’s most ambitious modern urban parks. These contrasting gardens express diversity and innovation. We’ll even visit a musical garden designed in part by cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
