March Stone Soup Speakers Series Explores The Story of Ornamentation in the Garden 3/15

Tuesday, 01 March 2022 15:34

For this winter's Stone Soup Speakers Series, we are focusing on some highlights of our quarterly Dogwood Lane, and sharing a "live" and more in-depth telling of some more intriguing features.
The March Zoom presentation will focus on the use of ornamentation in the garden and look at how their use evolved, how these design flourishes are used in garden design. We'll explore how Polly developed a varied and fascinating collection of garden ornaments that add color and whimsical nature to the arboretum. The Stone Soup speakers series is normally a convivial gathering around homemade soup, but this month's session will again be conducted virtually via Zoom.
The March Stone Soup session will be held on March 15th at 6:30 pm via Zoom and be broadcast later on Milton Public Access Television. To receive the zoom link for this session, please register here or email us at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
