Time for a road trip!
This week on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, UCMG Ann Liu interviews Michael Dehart, Grounds and Gardens Supervisor at the Getty Villa and takes listeners through a tour of the four gardens: Outer and Inner Peristyles, Herb Garden, and East Garden.
What an enjoyable respite from the heat of summer along the Malibu coast in the Pacific Palisades! J. Paul Getty was inspired by the Villa of Papyri (Scrolls) near the ancient Vesuvius eruption site.
Gain an understanding of how the rich Greek and Roman mythology and culture are woven into garden design and plant selections. Imagine how Roman citizens ate many of the same fruits and vegetables we enjoy today.
See how they sculpted their gardens as part of their Man-Control-Nature orientation. Be inspired by one of our many beautiful public gardens in SoCal.
