Hanover Garden Club: Bedrock Gardens: An Oasis of Art, Horticulture, and Inspiration

Learn more about gardening and the landscape of the Upper Valley at this monthly series, featuring a new topic each month.

Explore the history of Bedrock Gardens, a dairy farm turned into a remarkable garden oasis by founders Jill Nooney and Bob Munger. Today the garden is evolving into a premier public garden for New England. John Forti, Bedrock Gardens Executive Director, will give an illustrated talk about the past, present and future of this plant and art collectors’ paradise!

John Forti is a nationally recognized lecturer, garden historian, ethnobotanist and garden writer. He is the Executive Director of Bedrock Gardens in Lee, NH. Before taking on this position, he was the Director of Horticulture for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the oldest horticultural society in the nation. He previously served as the Curator/Director of Historic Landscapes at Strawbery Banke Museum, and as the Director of Horticulture at Plimoth Plantation Museum, where the gardens and seed program he created brought international attention to the preservation of Pilgrim and Wampanoag heirloom crops.
