John Bartram lives! Annual Arboretum reception and dinner , followed by a lively one-man performance about this 18th-century plant collector who did so much for horticulture.
Count on a lively evening as this Quaker gentlemen shares his adventures in the wilds of England’s colonies where he discovers an incredible list of new plants that he then ships to King George II and other wealthy customers in the Mother Country. Suspended from the Darby meeting in 1757 for his unbending demeanor, Friend Bartram is certain to also share his personal views on colonial politics and people. An evening not to be missed, (thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of Kirk R. Brown.)
