Ten years ago, Dan Pearson found a large, neglected city plot and set out to design and create a garden space of his own. Home Ground records a year in the life of Dan’s gardening experiences, revealing his thoughts and observations as his garden matures and develops over the year.
Arranged by seasons, Dan shares the challenges of gardening his city plot, in a series of diary-like entries and thoughtful essays, documenting the horticultural tasks required each season. He shares his successes and failures every step of the way.
The book is a beautiful document of a garden and a gardener at work, and this event is a rare chance to meet one of the world’s most respected garden designers.
