Celebrated master gardener and author Eck will read passages from “Our Life in Gardens” (2009) and “To Eat,” his most recent book, which comes out in June 2013. He will then take us for a springtime stroll through his beautiful gardens.
North Hill’s 1.5 acre daffodil meadow is home to more than 25,000 bulbs in dozens of varieties. It will take your breath away.
Eck, together with the late Wayne Winterrowd, established a garden design firm, North Hill, in Readsboro in 1977. They were co-authors of several books including “A Year at North Hill: Four Seasons in a Vermont Garden” and “Living Seasonally: The Kitchen Garden and the Table at North Hill.”
