A Garden Odyssey
Location: Ridgely, MD
Description: Imagine traveling the world in a passionate search for the most creatively designed gardens. In 2002, under the auspice of the Chanticleer Fellowship, Scott Scarfone was given the opportunity to expand his knowledge of society and culture as expressed through these gardens’ physical representations and intrinsic meanings.
His travels have led him to England, to garden at Great Dixter with the late Christopher Lloyd; to Italy, to visit the gardens of the Renaissance; to Japan, to view the ancient gardens of Kyoto and Nara; to Thailand, to study Eastern philosophy and garden design; to Costa Rica, to see tropical vegetation in a native rainforest environment; and to California, to study Mediterranean plants in a design style that only California can boast. This lecture highlights Scarfone’s excursions across the globe and illustrates some of the most prolific gardens ever created.
