FULL: Secret Gardens of Kyoto
Lecture | May 25 | 6-8 p.m. | UC Botanical Garden
Did you know that the gardens of Kyoto are mostly native, that the Japanese garden craftsmen strive to follow patterns found in local nature, and that things you see (plants and teatime) are as important as what you dont see (shadows and empty space)? Enter landscapes in private homes, monasteries, and an emperors estate with Leslie Buck as she takes you on a visual tour of gardens mentioned in her exciting new memoir: "Cutting Back: My Apprenticeship In the Gardens of Kyoto."
