EVERY GARDEN HAS A STORY
Tell me the facts and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever. - Native American proverb
Terry Karpen, Garden Storyteller, visits gardens all over the world. Her experiences have taught her that "every garden has a story." As windows into cultural expression throughout history, gardens are much more than pretty flowers and fragrant roses. Gardens mirror the architecture, art, literature, music, theater, religion, philosophy, and social and economic circumstances of their time and place. Terry is passionate about sharing her insights and discoveries. She brings to life unusual and seldom-visited public and private gardens with entertaining stories and beautiful slide images. The garden stories unfold compellingly as she takes you along on her journeys through New York, California, Spain, Italy, and beyond.
Terry is a speaker for garden clubs, social groups, library and continuing education programs, and her garden storyteller presentations are perennial favorites at the New York Botanical Garden.
