Parterre Garden Lecture and Tour
by Anna Timmerman, Pitot House Gardener
Saturday, November 22, 10:00—11:30 AM at the Pitot House
The parterre garden fronting the historic Pitot House has endured many changes, but the essential design can be traced back over 150 years. Gardener Anna Timmerman will provide examples of French parterre gardens from the fifteenth century to the present, as well as formal and contemporary examples here in New Orleans and abroad. A short garden tour and discussion of plans for future additions to the gardens and restoration of the Pitot House parterre will take place following a slide presentation.
The lecture is free for LLS members and $10 for non-members.
Tickets can be purchased at the door.
