Nature's Narratives: The Backyard Parables: Lessons on Gardening and Life
Wednesday, February 12, 5:30 to 6:30 pm
Gillespie Room, Wister Center
Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives” is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum where readers come together to discuss a book once a month and share in the reading experience.
This month the group will discuss Margaret Roach's The Backyard Parables: Lessons on Gardening and Life. Margaret Roach has been harvesting thirty years of backyard parables--deceptively simple, instructive stories from a life spent digging ever deeper--and has distilled them in this memoir along with her best tips for garden making, discouraging all manner of animal and insect opponents, at-home pickling, and more.
The discussions are free and open to the public. Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion. Call 610-328-8025 to register.
