What you'll learn in this garden class:

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849 – 1924) was an unlikely garden writer, particularly of the sort to inspire children. Still, The Secret Garden is a perennial favorite of gardeners. Burnett did not cultivate any substantial bit of earth until she was almost 50 years old. We will explore Burnett’s development as a gardener, her gardens in England, America, and Bermuda, and the origins and evolution of The Secret Garden.
