17th Annual Garden Symposium
March 27th | 11:30 AM – 1 PM | Carriage House
Each gardener is inspired by something: creating beauty, connecting with nature, cultivating life. This year’s Garden Symposium focuses on the power of gardening and what inspires us to create, connect, and cultivate.
Jenks Farmer is a plantsman, horticulturist, designer, and storyteller who transformed his family’s hay farm into a crinum lily farm. Farmer has spent his life studying nature and plant sciences, sharing his knowledge, and inspiring others about their own gardens. His work on the science of crinum lilies has been published in scientific journals, and main-stream magazines. Join Farmer at the 2019 Garden Symposium to hear about his gardening journey and renew your inspiration.
The 17th Annual Goodwood Garden Symposium will be held 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, at the Carriage House at Goodwood Museum & Gardens. Tickets are $35 and include lunch. Books and bulbs will be available for purchase.
The Importance of Being Earnest
March 31 – April 18 | Jubilee Cottage
Join us for this trivial comedy for serious people. Oscar Wilde turns his brilliantly biting wit on the foibles of the Victorian-era aristocracy through the romances of two oh-so-proper gentlemen and their chosen paramours. Add an overbearing Lady Bracknell with definite views of propriety (at least until huge sums of money are added), and the play becomes a recipe for social commentary filled with laughter.
This production is a bit out of the ordinary. Each of the three acts will be performed at a different place on the Goodwood campus (weather permitting). The first act will be in the Jubilee Cottage, the second act will be staged on the side porch of the Main House, and the third act will be IN the Main House, resplendent with high ceilings and museum-quality antiques. The concept that you, as an audience member, will move to different places to follow the action of the play is called “promenade theater.”
