John Bartram Lives!

  • March 11, 2014
  • 7:30 PM
  • The Church of the Brethren
Featuring: Kirk R. Brown

It what promises to be a most unusual meeting for our Club, Kirk R. Brown will portray the life of America's first botanist and horticulturist John Bartram in a first-person biographical and historical presentation. 

Prepare to be entertained, amused, awed, intrigued and educated as history comes alive!

John will welcome you with the horticultural history of America as it began in Philadelphia and Penn’s Woods. He will also describe its influence on English gardens between 1730 and 1770 as well as those of Presidents Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison. His story starts at the very beginning of the international world of plant discovery and identification.

His humor, his passion and his achievements entertain, inspire, and awe as he shares his hope for the future of the earth.
