Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden
This morning the NYTimes Home section ran a front page article on Thomas Jefferson’s gardens at Monticello, focusing on both the gardens themselves as well as the gardening philosophy of the founding father who designed them. In the article, reporter Anne Raver speaks extensively with Peter Hatch, the director of gardens and grounds at Monticello, and author of the forthcoming Yale University Press book, Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden. Having overseen the maintenance and restoration of the gardens since 1979, Hatch is uniquely qualified to write such a knowledgeable account about both Monticello and Thomas Jefferson, about both the gardens and the man.
