April 14, 2021 Virtual Meeting – A Piet Oudolf Story

Piet Oudolf is a world renown Dutch garden designer, plant nursery man and author. He is a leading figure of the “New Perennial” movement. His designs and plant compositions use bold drifts of herbaceous perennials and grasses  chosen at least as much for their structure as for their flower colour.  Researching Piet’s aesthetic principles led Dr./Ms. Deborah Chud to design and create her own Oudolfian garden in the Boston area. She will describe her processes in her presentation to the garden club on April 14th, 2021.

Deborah Chud is a retired physician turned landscape design consultant, educator, and Piet Oudolf researcher. She is a member of the Perennial Plant Association.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm. If you are interested in attending our virtual meeting, but have not received the meeting link via email, or are not a SGC member, you can email for the link.

Ann Steinberg

At our January meeting, Ann Steinberg, a club member since 2007 who also served as the club’s Vice President from 2012 to 2014, shared a set of exquisite garden photographs.  Ann passed away less than five weeks later, on February 13.  We share those photographs here in memory of a beloved club member.
