The Founding Gardeners

 Andrea Wulf

I would like to formally invite you…

On Saturday, March 2, 2013, you will have the opportunity to hear author Andrea Wulf talk about her latest book, “The Founding Gardeners.” “The Founding Gardeners” was featured on the New York Times Best Seller List and the New York Times called it an ‘illuminating and engrossing new book.’ The event is hosted by the Daughters of the American Revolution Presidio Chapter, an organization I am involved with, and invited guests are welcome to attend. Please see more information below about the location and time of the event.

This beautifully illustrated talk looks at the lives of the founding fathers and how their attitude to plants, gardens, nature and agriculture shaped the American nation. George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison regarded themselves foremost as farmers and plantsmen and for them gardening, agriculture and botany were elemental passions, as deeply ingrained in their characters as their belief in liberty for the nation they were creating. In a unique retelling of the creation of America, award-winning historian Andrea Wulf will show how plants, politics and personalities intertwined as never before.

Location: Winfield Scott Campus of the Claire Lilienthal School
