Garden Travels: Photos and Pestos of Italy
Mercedes and John Dewey travelled to Italy for the first time, visiting Rome, Florence, Lucca and the five towns of Cinque Terre on the Ligurian coast. Their trip included a hike in Cinque Terre, glorious weather and stunning views, documented in Mercedes’ beautiful photographs. The talk also will include their account of a mountain-side pesto making class from a man using his grandmother’s 100+ year old mortar and pestle. There will be a social starting at 6:30 p.m., and the talk will begin at 7 p.m. Sponsored by Friends of the Garden.
