Big Thinkers with Mark and Ben Cullen

Tuesday, December 11, 2018
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Oakville Public Library - Central Branch

Join us for our Big Thinkers speakers series with Canada’s top horticulture expert Mark Cullen and his son Ben Cullen. The bestselling author will reflect on his years of gardening in Canada and the ways that horticulture is changing the world. Sharing excerpts from his newest book, Escape to Reality, Cullen will discuss topics ranging from nature as therapy to practical tips for cultivating and coexisting with your garden. This event is held alongside David Hartt’s exhibition at Oakville Galleries, in the forest, which explores the artist’s ongoing interest in how social values are expressed in both built and natural environments.

Copies of Escape to Reality, featuring artwork by Sarah Duggan, will be available for sale from A Different Drummer Books. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute.

This program is free of charge; pre-registration required.
