Monticello - April 28: Hear author-landscape architect Thomas Woltz at an elegant garden party on West Lawn

TOM Talks
Join us to celebrate the opening of Garden Week
at our first TOM Talk of the year!
Thomas Woltz (right), celebrated landscape architect and author, will speak at an elegant garden party on Monticello's West Lawn on April 28. Drawing on his work for Monticello's landscape stewardship plan, Woltz will address modern design methods which can improve our ecology and reveal cultural and historic landscapes. Woltz was educated at the University of Virginia in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, fine art and architectural history. He was recently profiled in Elle Decor and Garden Design magazines.
