2011 Historic Landscape Symposium
On the Ground: Putting Preservation into Practice
Save the Date!
November 3-4, 2011 with optional field trip on November 5
Hosted by Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Caretakers of public gardens are, in a sense, historians. Whether in a brand new or ancient garden, the decisions we make imprint upon the fabric of the garden, and are written in its history. As stewards we do our best to plan for appropriate, economical, and successful restorations of our gardens. But what happens once the shovels hit the soil? How do we insure the result lives up to our expectations?
If you’re on the ground making day-to-day decisions or an administrator trying to figure out the bigger picture, this symposium will provide you contact with the tools and resources you need to make informed decisions, develop a game plan, and then put those principles into practice. Held at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a National Historic Landmark in Miami with one of the best Italianate gardens in the United States, you’ll get to see this firsthand in a historic garden that is putting its principles into practice—the first phase of its $50 million restoration!
