When renowned British botanist John Lindley wrote Ladies’ Botany in 1834, he did so to block women from, not welcome them into, the academic world of horticulture. Learn how women figured it out anyway and managed to contribute to science, influence public taste and advance their own craft. The Victorian artists featured range from rebels to spinsters, suffragettes to missionary wives and are highlighted with strikingly beautiful imagery and humor.  Presented by Lesley Parness, Garde Historian and retired Superintendent of Horticultural Education at New Jersey’s Morris County Park Commission.  Visit Lesley's website here!
