Join Scott Arboretum staff and local gardening enthusiasts as they share travel experiences abroad! In addition to learning about spectacular gardens, plants, and landscapes, you’ll get a taste of the art, cuisine, architecture, and customs of lands near and far. It’s a perfect wintertime escape!
Nine gardens from different epochs and climates make up the Persian Garden World Heritage Site (one of the 21 World Heritage Sites in Iran). Michael Brown who is retired from Medical Publishing, will explore five of the nine gardens, generalize about the features of Persian gardens, and discuss the influence of this style in Iranian and world gardening. Architecture and culture will be mentioned when they are important to viewing the gardens in context.
