Next Sunday Dianne's Lecture in Bridgehampton


Sunday,  March 6th
  One  PM —  Lecture
Reception follows
Bridge Garden Trust
Dianne Benson Guest Speaker

This Winter Lecture Series in The Hamptons is a collaboration between The Madoo Conservancy,
Bridge Gardens and the Peconic Land Trust
and I hope that if you are anywhere near the East End of Long Island on that day
that you will come to hear me talk.  The Series this year has focused on
Objects in the Garden, and so I will be talking on a favorite topic:

Bulbs, Tubers and Tropicals:
  Objects of the Summer Garden
Winter Lecture Series at Bridge Gardens
Bridge Gardens, 36 Mitchell Lane, Bridgehampton

1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Please join us for our fifth lecture in our six-part series in cooperation with
Madoo Conservancy.

This week's lecture will feature former fashion diva and all-around
garden enthusiast, Dianne Benson.
In keeping with our theme of art in the garden, Ms. Benson's presentation is entitled,
"Objects in the Summer Garden: Tubers, Tropicals and Bulbs." Dianne Benson authors her monthly newsletter: "Dirtier" and her website:, where she has
whittled all the gardening accoutrements in the world down to Twelve Garden Greats -
a garden shoppers dream come true.
Currently co-President of LongHouse Reserve and a Director of the Water Mill Center, Ms. Benson's indulgence in the arts and gardening on the East End are central to her life.
She is currently working on a sequel to her cult classic,
"DIRT: Dirtier: The Continuing Story of a Passionate Gardener."

Lectures are $15/person, or free to members of either Bridge
Gardens or Madoo Conservancy.

Refreshments will be provided following the program.
For reservations, please contact Robin Harris at the Peconic Land Trust at 631-283-3195

I sure do hope you all will come…there will be lots of scintillating images to drool over…and a delightful reception following…….
