Walk & Learn: Contemplating Composition in the Garden

When: Saturday, August 28, 2021 – 4:00 – 7:30 PM (EST) Where: Landcraft Garden Foundation

Format: Walking lecture & guided tour Hosted by: The Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons Cost: $250/person.  This event is a joint fundraiser and proceeds will benefit HAH and Landcraft Garden Foundation equally.

For our 2021 Karish Program we will be doing something a little different. Planning began when it didn’t seem likely that we would be able to meet in large groups or hold indoor lectures. We still wanted the opportunity to gather together safely and learn something new; our solution was an intimate outdoor learning experience!

Our program will take place at Landcraft Garden Foundation and benefit both HAH and the Foundation. It will feature garden founders Dennis Schrader and Bill Smith, horticulturalist David Culp and photographer Rob Cardillo.

We will explore the idea of composition as it relates to plantings (textures, color, seasonality) and photographs. After brief framework remarks, we will break into four small groups led by Dennis, Bill, David and Rob to walk through the garden and examine real-life examples of these concepts. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from these experts — and ask lots of questions — while enjoying the grounds… and support two great organizations in the process.  Following the tour we will gather for wine and cheese on the West Terrace to mingle and take in the spectacular views of the garden in the evening light. We hope you can join us for this very special program!
