Change: The Passage of Time in the Garden
Sydney Eddison, nationally recognized garden writer and author of seven books including her newest, Gardening for a Lifetime: How to Garden Wiser as You Grow Older (Timber Press, 2010), will share a wonderful array of stories and insights gained from a lifetime of gardening and tell us about the adaptations she has made as an aging gardener as she works to simplify her two-acre Connecticut garden. Painful joints, an aching back, and the loss of her husband made it impossible for her to maintain the garden as it once was.
