Celebrate the achievements of great women gardeners! In his new talk, “Garden Goddesses: Four California Women and Their Legendary Gardens,” popular garden writer Donald Olson takes you on an informative and entertaining tour of some spectacular California gardens and introduces you to the remarkable women who created them. You’ll meet Kate Sessions, the “Mother of Balboa Park” in San Diego; Florence Yoch, California’s first female landscape architect and designer of the garden sets for Tara in “Gone With the Wind”; Virginia Robinson, creator of the first garden estate in Beverly Hills, scene of star-studded Hollywood parties; and Ganna Walska, a flamboyant opera singer who used her immense wealth to create Lotusland in Santa Barbara, considered by many to be among the top ten gardens of the world.
