"The Artist's Garden"

 

Michael Petrie is an artist who uses plants like paint. You’ve seen his work at the Philadelphia Flower Show: tumbling terracotta pots, cascades of tools, Jurassic Park dinosaurs, pathways of pussy willows, giant timepieces. He recently left the post of vice president at J. Franklin Styer’s Nursery and has opened Handmade Gardens, his own retail plant and landscape design business. Michael will share his design thought process in this lecture jointly sponsored with the Hardy Plant Society, Mid-Atlantic Chapter and the Henry Foundation for Botanical Research.

The Strawbridge Observatory at Haverford College houses 12-inch and 16-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes which are actively used by students in Haverford astronomy classes.
