FOUNDING GARDENERS - Presentation by author Andrea Wulf

Hosted by the General Henry Knox Museum


The real dirt. Celebrated plant historian and British ex-pat author Andrea Wulf shares her wealth of knowledge in a special presentation hosted by the Knox Museum at the Strand Theatre.

In 1961, when John F. Kennedy asked Rachel Lambert Mellon to design the Rose Garden at the White House, the commission established a strong link with America’s botanical past. And so, much more recently, has Michelle Obama’s organic vegetable garden, elsewhere on the grounds. As Andrea Wulf reminds us in her illuminating and engrossing new book, “Founding Gardeners,” the first four presidents were passionate botanists whose country seats became laboratories for their grander vision of an independent agrarian republic in the New World. - Paula Dietz, New York Times
