Peter Hatch will discuss the various themes that defined Thomas Jefferson’s interest in gardening and the natural world, the restoration of the gardens and landscape at Monticello over the last 50 years, and how the fruits, flowers, and vegetables Jefferson cultivated have evolved over the last two centuries. Hatch is the author of “A Rich Spot of Earth”–Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden at Monticello.
