Mizzou Botanic Garden Welcomes Peter Hatch, former director of Monticello. For more than 30 years, Hatch was responsible for the maintenance and conservation of Monticello’s historic 2,400-acre landscape. Join us August 26 at 7 p.m.. in the Columns Ballroom at Reynolds Alumni Center for a celebration of Mizzou Botanic Garden’s 15th Anniversary and a lecture from Peter Hatch about Monticello, the gardens of Thomas Jefferson. Book sales and signing will be available at the event, so don't miss out!
Peter gave a fabulous talk that had so much to say about Jefferson and the world of that era. He supplied great insight into things Jefferson was doing that are considered "new wave" today. The length and depth of the talk rooted in 35 years of learning about Monticello was greatly appreciated.
