Gardens in History: History, Art, and Design of Kitchen Gardens

COURSE

Course description

Spring’s the time to plan your kitchen garden! Over the past few years, kitchen and potager gardens have become extremely popular. From their humble beginnings in antiquity to the medieval château gardens of France and the grand walled gardens of Victorian and Edwardian Britain, they have played a central role in garden and landscape history. In this course, we will explore the history of kitchen gardens from their early beginnings to the resurgence in contemporary garden trends. We will examine the basic designs, including symmetrical geometrical beds, irrigation features that incorporate central pools, wells, fountains and water-channels. We will also examine plant material, gardening practices, and how you can incorporate some of these ideas to create your own beautiful and bountiful kitchen garden, whether in a plot or in a pot.
