Attend an evening of stories with Abra Lee, horticulturist, educator, and author of the forthcoming book Conquer The Soil: Black America and the Untold Stories of Our Country’s Gardeners, Farmers, and Growers.
Her work is centered on unearthing what she refers to as “love stories” on the richness of United States garden history and culture. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Fine Gardening, Veranda Magazine, and NPR. Lee is a graduate of Auburn University College of Agriculture and an alumna of the Longwood Gardens Society of Fellows, a global network of public horticulture professionals.
The program will take place at the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor, 132 Broadway, Buffalo. Lee will share stories from 5:30 – 6:30 pm with a light reception to follow.
Seating is limited for this free event, and pre-registration is required.
Support for this program has been generously provided by The M & T Charitable Foundation and is hosted by The Nash House Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House.
This presentation will coincide with Gardens Buffalo Niagara’s East Side Garden Walk.
