Saturday, July 21, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Living in Harmony With Nature: Gropius Landscape and House Tour

Join Historic New England for a special evening tour of Gropius House and its grounds. Find out why Walter Gropius believed that the relationship between a house and its landscape was of peak importance. He designed the grounds of his family home as carefully as the structure itself. Gropius, founder of the German design school known as the Bauhaus, was one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century. The landscape of his 1938 home reflects Modern spatial principles, which Gropius integrated into a New England agricultural environment. Both the house and landscape reflect what Gropius called “living in harmony with nature.” Light refreshments provided at intermission. $35 Historic New England members, $45 nonmembers. Space is limited. Advance tickets required. Please call 781-259-8098 or buy online at www.historicnewengland.org. Gropius House is located at 68 Baker Bridge Road in Lincoln.

Saturday, July 28, 10:30 am – 12:00 noon – Native Lawn Alternatives for Urban Spaces

“Lawns are a soul-crushing time suck” cries the media. Lawn covers more surface area of the U.S. than any other single irrigated crop, according to NASA. Lawns are resource-heavy, requiring irrigation, fertilizer, and pesticides to thrive in our climate. Learn some of the best, environmentally friendly lawn alternatives for urban gardens. Mark Richardson will discuss Native Lawn Alternatives for Urban Spaces on Saturday, July 28 beginning at 10:30 am. The program is free. The Urban Gardening Series is a set of lectures designed to help city dwellers grow healthy, sustainable, and beautiful gardens. Led by New England Wild Flower Society in partnership with the Cambridge Conservation Commission, these free lectures take place at the Cambridge Public Library, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA.
