Thomas Jefferson And The Monticello Gardens

Jun 18, 2013

Peter Hatch

Thomas Jefferson was more than a founding father.  He was an avid gardener.  We’ve learned more about Jefferson’s passion for gardening thanks to Peter Hatch and the various books he has written.

Hatch is the retired Director of Gardens and Grounds at Jefferson’s Monticello.  He’ll speak on the UIS campus Thursday night.  He also talked with WUIS’ Sean Crawford about Jefferson’s gardens….

The event at 6 p.m. Thursday will be held at the Brookens Auditorium at UIS.  It’s part of the Engaged Citizenship Common Experience (ECCE) Series.
