Do you look forward to spring for the beauty that your gardens produce? Do you love
your gardens but not the seemingly endless hours of maintenance that they demand?
Have you ever found yourself resenting your gardens because their care prevents you
from pursuing other interests? And finally, have you come to the painful realization that
you and your gardens have aged and changed over time?

“Aging Gardens, Aging Gardeners” responds to these questions. It is intended to help
all of us come to terms with our aging, but very much beloved gardens. Ann presents
strategies for gardening more wisely: taking care of ourselves as we garden; assessing
our home landscapes; prioritizing gardening tasks; managing mature plants; and,
creating smaller, simpler gardens.

For years, our gardens have given us great joy. This talk offers us ways by which we
can continue to enjoy these beautiful spaces with much less work.
Ann McEntee is a former Communications and Theatre professor. She left teaching to
