Sept. 6 Daytime Meeting — Aging Gardens, Aging Gardeners

Presented by Ann McEntee

Meeting Times and Locations

Garden at Cathedral of the Pines (Rindge, NH)

Do you look forward to spring for the beauty that your gardens produce? Do you love your gardens but not the seemingly endless hours of maintenance that they demand? Have you ever found yourself resenting your gardens because their care prevents you from pursuing other interests? And finally, have you come to the painful realization that you and your gardens have aged and changed over time?

Ann McEntee’s presentation — “Aging Gardens, Aging Gardeners” — will address these questions and help us come to terms with our aging, but very much beloved gardens. Come learn strategies for gardening more wisely: taking care of yourself as you garden; assessing your home landscape; prioritizing garden tasks; managing mature plants; and creating smaller, simpler gardens.

After earning a Master of Landscape Architecture from University of New Mexico and certification as an Advanced Master Gardener, Ann took on the role of lead gardener at Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, NH.

Today Ann works as a garden design consultant and speaker, and also teaches landscape history and garden courses at Keene State College’s Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning.
