This series of workshops takes a broad view of what it means to garden. Whether you consider yourself a backyard gardener, a forager, a farmer, or a steward of the land, the Garden Series will have something for you. From formal garden design to identifying and learning to use wild growing plants, we span a range of techniques and philosophies. Because of the range of subjects covered, these classes can be enjoyed by new and experienced gardeners alike.

Stroll Lynden’s grounds with herbalist Kyle Denton and discover the summer bounty of plants found in the wilds of southeast Wisconsin. Inside, we’ll prepare the healing herbs we forage, sample them, and discuss their taste and energetic qualities. Drawing on folklore, ancient wisdom, plant identification, and science, Denton will expand your understanding of our relationship to the natural world.

Rosemary Ollison has transformed each of her apartments into an artist environment, deploying layers of pattern, duct tape sculptures, curtains of woven leather, crazy quilts, and inventive drawings. At Lynden she creates an immersive environment within the former home of Harry and Peg Bradley. Spreading beyond the gallery, where a nineteen-foot leather quilt will hang, Ollison will transform Lynden’s dining room, preparing it for an imaginary dinner party. Ollison is a 77-year-old self-taught artist and 2018 Nohl Fellow in the Emerging category. At 16, Ollison moved to the Midwest from an Arkansas plantation, and she began making art in 1994 while healing from an abusive marriage. She collects glass, leather, bracelets, beads, bones, and jewelry from thrift shops and rummage sales and repurposes these materials into sculptural and wearable works. This is a Call & Response event.
