John Forti will be speaking about Bedrock Gardens where he is the Executive Director. Located in Lee, NH – only 30 minutes South of us – the Garden is an Oasis of Art, Horticulture and Inspiration and integrates unusual specimens and unique sculptures. Bedrock Gardens was developed and founded by Jill Nooney and Bob Munger. The Garden has now evolved into a premier public garden.
John Forti will explore the history of a dairy farm turned into a remarkable garden oasis and give an illustrated talk about the past, present and future of this plant and art collector’s paradise.
We invite you to enjoy this engaging and informative presentation about the amazing and beautiful Bedrock Gardens.
