Women and Nature

Edith in Garden upstate ny.JPG

This exhibit explores how Edith Fetherston was part of a generation of women who were instructed by history to have an interest in gardening. However, Fetherston’s design process for Packwood House’s garden and career as a horticulturist means that she did not treat gardening as a genteel pastime, but as an academic pursuit.
