& PLANT SALE:
On The High Line: The New Nature of Urban
Parks and Community Places with Rick Darke
Join us for a thought-provoking and visually enticing
lecture by Rick Darke on New York City’s new and innovative park, the High
Line. Re-purposed from an abandoned
elevated rail line, the High Line is a semi-wild experience featuring a bit of open
space removed from the landscape of modern urban life. Rick will chronicle the High Line’s
beginnings, its stunning success attracting millions of visitors annually, and
look at related projects. Rick Darke is a widely published author,
photographer, lecturer and consultant focusing on landscape design, planning
and conservation. On The High Line, a new book by Annik La Farge, features Rick’s
remarkable photographs and insightful writing.
Join Rick for a book signing and reception immediately following his
lecture. The evening will also include a plant sale of edible & native
plants to benefit the Gardens and Montgomery Parks Community Gardens. Course number 189199; Thursday, May 3,
