The Life and Gardens of Beatrix Farrand (2018, 40 minutes)
THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELED
Friday, November 30
7:00 p.m. inside the Library

Join us for a screening of the first documentary ever produced about the life and gardens of Beatrix Farrand (1872-1959), the most successful female landscape architect in early 20th century America. The niece of Edith Wharton, Beatrix Farrand grew up in the privileged world of the East Coast elite and fought through the challenges of working in a male-dominated profession to design over 200 landscape commissions during her remarkable 50-year career.  The film was made by Karyl Evans, a six-time Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and Yale University Fellow, and recently received the Historic Preservation Award from the Garden Club of America. Our screening will be hosted by Karyl and Sausalito resident and gardener Jennifer Spinach. This program is co-sponsored by Sausalito Beautiful.

MillionTrees NYCSpeaker Series
The Art and Science of Tree Planting
THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELED
Thursday, December 6
7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Starting in 2005, the NYC Parks Department completed a street tree census of close to 600,000 trees throughout all the streets of New York City. Data from this census was leveraged into MillionTrees NYC, a public/private partnership between the City of New York and the New York Restoration Project founded by Bette Midler. MillionTrees NYC planted trees throughout the entire City – in front of homes, businesses, in parks, and on private land. This presentation will give an overview of the quantifiable benefits of trees in NYC, the planting process of trees during MillionTrees, and how volunteers throughout all of NYC joined the initiative to help care for and plant trees. Speaker Matthew Stephens is currently the Director of the Conservatory of Flowers and San Francisco Botanical Garden. Matthew will also share his ideas for bringing a similar initiative to Sausalito.
