Parterre Garden Lecture and Tour by Anna Timmerman, Pitot House Gardener
Saturday, November 22, 10:00—11:30 AM
at the Pitot House

 
The parterre garden fronting the historic Pitot House has endured many changes, but the essential design can be traced back over 150 years. Gardener Anna Timmerman will provide examples from the fifteenth century onwards of French parterre gardens, as well as formal and contemporary examples here in New Orleans and abroad. A short garden tour and discussion of plans for future additions to the gardens and restoration of the Pitot House parterre will take place following a slide presentation. 
 
The lecture is free for LLS members and $10 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased at the door. 
 
 
To commemorate the Windsor Court Hotel’s 30th anniversary and the community in which it thrives, the hotel is launching a “30 Ways to Give Back” contest this holiday season. The winning organization will receive a room rental, catering and event coordination for an event in 2015 (valued at $10,000!). 

The first round of Windsor Court’s #30Ways to Give Back contest closes Sunday at midnight! Help Louisiana Landmarks Society make it to the top 5 by voting for us once daily!
