Mad Gardeners Annual Symposium

Just Us: Mad Gardeners Working with the Land, Part 2 

Page Dickey Aquilegia canadensis on limestone at Church House, by Page Dickey

This is the second in a two-year series by our own excellent members, about what we—right here, right now—do in our gardens and landscapes. Our distinguished speaker lineup includes Page Dickey, Richard Rosiello, and Michael Nadeau & Robin Zitter.

You will hear very personal talks on the design process, on how gardens and gardeners grow and develop over time, and how our ever-expanding ecological awareness is affecting all that we do, supported by stunning visual examples from the speakers.


Recertification credits: Approved: CT DEEP, 3 credits for PA, 3A, and 3D and APLD.
Approval pending: NOFA Organic Land Care AOLPC.

How to spread the word about your non-profit organization’s event through us: We are an informal group. Our 3 mailed newsletters are published fall, winter and spring. To submit an article contact Kathy Diemer. To submit a calendar event listing contact Paula Caceci or the webmaster. For event listings provide your email address and a brief event description (date, time, location, description and a link to more info, if available). Some events are included in the newsletter, but all are forwarded to our webmaster for possible posting.

Note: notices emailed to members are restricted to business-related information and meeting reminders, with other events occasionally tacked on. They are sent infrequently so we recommend that you regularly check this website for area news and events.
