“Coping with Deer in the Garden and Landscape” January 26 at Meeting House
The Committee to Save the Bird Homestead has rescheduled “Coping with Deer in the Garden and Landscape,” a lecture and book signing by well-known horticulturalist and garden writer Ruth Rogers Clausen, for Saturday, January 26, at 3 pm at the Meeting House. The program was postponed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which left the Meeting House without power.
Ms. Clausen is the author of the book 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants: The Prettiest Annuals, Perennials, Bulbs, and Shrubs that Deer Don't Eat. She has gardened in Westchester County for many years and will offer expert advice on how to have a successful garden, while coexisting with deer. Her book will be available for sale and signing by the author.
She serves on the advisory committee for the School of Professional Horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden and is a member of the advisory council for the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. Her book Perennials for American Gardens received the Quill and Trowel Award from the Garden Writers Association in 1990.
A well-respected expert, author, teacher, and overall lover of nature, Clausen is the former horticulture editor for Country Living Gardener magazine. She has also contributed numerous articles to Country Gardens, Horticulture, and Organic Gardening. The gardening programs presented by the Committee to Save the Bird Homestead honor the tradition of horticultural and landscape expertise represented by Henry Bird and his daughter Alice Bird Erikson.
Admission is $5 per person at the door. The Meeting House is located at 624 Milton Road in Rye. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-967-0099.
