Weekends through Aug. 11
How do garden owners and their landscape architects or designers work together to create a great garden? Garden Dialogues brings together patrons and designers to reveal the creative process, the give and take, and the collaboration that yields a great garden. This program, held at various locations across the country, provides unique opportunities for small groups to experience some of today’s most beautiful gardens created by some of the most accomplished designers currently in practice. On weekends throughout the spring and summer at more than three dozen sites, landscape architects and their clients will provide insights into how they work together to create today’s masterworks.
Launched to critical acclaim in 2012, the program offers participants the chance to visit private gardens in Atlanta, the Hamptons, Sonoma, Connecticut and much more. Garden Dialogues has become one of the most popular programs in the foundation’s 15-year history – most Dialogues sell out weeks in advance – so we’re expanding the program in 2013.

Recordings are sent via e‐mail approximately one week following the live webinar. Webinars are limited to 150 participants and forms must be received by the deadline noted under each webinar. Cancellation requests will be accepted up to one week prior to the webinar being held for a 100% reimbursement.
