The Oak Spring Garden Foundation (former estate of Paul and Rachel Mellon near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia) is offering a residential short course on "Writing the Landscape" from October 7-11, 2024. The seminar will be taught by Gretchen E.

Guests will include OSGF’s founding president, Sir Peter Crane, former Director of the Field Museum in Chicago, Director of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew (UK), and Dean of Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (now School of the Environment). Participants will be accommodated with private lodging on site and all meals.
