Speaker: Naturalist and Historian, Jack MacRae
This program is an entertaining look at one of the most truly peculiar tales in the long history of landscaping. The garden gnomes of today have a story that dates back centuries, to a time when the sprawling estates of Britain were home to all forms of botanic and natural exotica, brought together for the sole purpose of artistic expression and garden interest.
