A Talk by Mandy Katz will be hosted at Pebble Hill at 6 p.m. on Thursday. The topic of the talk is called "Growing the Bartram’s 21st-Century Garden."

 

Mandy Katz is the Lead Gardener and Land Manager of Bartram’s Garden. Bartram’s Garden is located on 50 acres on the Tidal Schuylkill River in Southwest Philadelphia and is North America’s oldest surviving botanic garden. Katz will provide a brief overview of various horticulture projects at Bartram’s Garden over the past two decades.

She has experimented with many of the rare native plants grown by the Bartram family in the 18th century, especially aquatic plants. She has also championed the seed keeping program at Bartram’s, stewarding seeds of many culturally, and historically important vegetable, flower, and native perennial plants. She is currently working with Lenni Lenape partners to bring a Lenape Research Fellowship to Bartram’s Garden to guide the garden’s historic research into the culture and land management practices of the Lenape, the indigenous people who inhabited the land that became Philadelphia.
