HAH Monthly Lecture

Bill Noble

“Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads in Them”

The gardens that speak to me the most are those of extraordinary plantsmen and women, both contemporary and from the past, who have grasped the raw material of a site and through their engagement with place have created gardens both eloquent and useful. I have been inspired by gardens conceived in traditional styles as well as those that have pioneered new plants and planting styles. Some of the questions I try to answer in a garden are how does it relate to the larger landscape, what design concepts are at work, and what role do plants play in the garden? In this talk I will survey some contemporary gardens with an inspiring sense of place as well as some from the past that have recently been restored. What qualities do historic gardens possess that make them relevant today? And how can some contemporary gardens continue into the future? What these gardens have in common, as Marianne Moore puts it, is “a place for the genuine.”

For thirty years Bill Noble has worked as a garden designer and professional in garden preservation.  As Director of Preservation for the Garden Conservancy, he was instrumental in the preservation and restoration of dozens of gardens throughout the United States. He is currently active in designing new gardens and revitalizing existing gardens throughout New England. His own garden in Norwich, Vermont, is included in the Smithsonian Institution’s Archive of American Gardens, and has been featured in Martha Stewart Living, House & Garden, The New York Times and Outstanding American Gardens: A Celebration: 25 Years of the Garden.

Lectures are free to members and $10 for not-yet members. Please become a member so that you can enjoy all of our lectures for free.

Followed by a reception downstairs in the HAH LoGerfo Library. All are welcome to ask more questions of our lecturer and enjoy some refreshments.

HAH Monthly Lecture: Rick Bogusch

Herb Blends & Spice Mixes: How to Make Them & How to Use Them

The use of herbs and spices has a long history, longer than you might imagine. The earliest ancient Egyptians enjoyed anise, caraway, cardamom and mustard and the Goths showed their love of black pepper – still the most valuable and traded spice today – when they demanded three thousand pounds of peppercorns, along with gold and silver, not to sack Rome.
In our February lecture, Rick Bogusch, will explore the history and horticulture of herbs and spices and examine spice mixes from around the world and their ingredients. There will be handouts with recipes, as well as spice mix samples. A reception featuring recipes utilizing herbs and spices will follow and take place in the main auditorium upstairs instead of in the John LoGerfo Library.
Rick Bogusch has degrees in botany and landscape architecture and has gardened since he was a young teenager. He worked for Cornell University for 20 years as a landscape architect for the Cornell Botanical Garden. After that he worked as an estate gardener in Columbia County, NY. For the past 10 years he has worked for Peconic Land Trust as the Manager of Bridge Gardens and for the past 4 years he has proudly served on the Board of the Horticultural Alliance. His love and knowledge of plants extends from the extensive herb and vegetable gardens at Bridge Gardens right into the kitchen where he avidly uses what he grows.

Members free; Not yet members $10. Main Hall of the Bridgehampton Community House.
