Thomas Mickey, Author & Professor Emeritus of Communication Studies, Bridgewater State University
Tuesday, June 5, 6:00 PM, Rosecliff

Join Thomas Mickey for a fascinating exploration of the beginning of the modern garden industry in the 1890s which made it possible to publish and mail seed and nursery catalogs in mass quantities across the country. Discover how this mass marketing heightened interest in the romantic English garden style through essays, illustrations, and ads and popularized the English Garden from California to Maine.
