Apr. 4 Daytime Meeting — Boot Camp for Your Senses

Presented by Tovah Martin

Meeting Times and Locations

Tovah Martin

The Amherst Garden Club is thrilled to welcome celebrated horticulturalist Tovah Martin!

Imagine how fulfilling your garden could be if you just “plugged in.” Gardening expert and author Tovah Martin brings us “Boot Camp for Your Senses,” a presentation that explores the garden on all levels by attuning your nose to its scents and training your ears to listen.

Just in time for spring, this lecture will awaken your senses and spark perceptions on all levels. Subtleties that you never noticed before will be uncovered and defined. Broaden your horizons and explore with a “Smellathon” to get your nostrils in gear. After this presentation, your garden will be more savory— you will know its touch, smell its aromas, hear its voice, and see it anew.  Garden advice and ideas will be shared.

Tovah is a perennial, heirloom, vegetable and cottage gardener of fanatical proportions, and is an honorary member of the Garden Club of America and the recipient of their medal for outstanding literary achievement.

An avid gardener indoors and out, Tovah has authored more than a dozen gardening books, including Tasha Tudor’s Garden (Houghton Mifflin, 1994).   Her most recent title, The Garden in Every Sense and Season, hit the bookstores last year and is the inspiration for her presentation.
