About the Program
Andrea Wulf explores the Founding Father's interests in botany and agriculture. Ms. Wulf focuses on the first four Presidents and their fondness for gardening from Washington's vigilant oversight of his Mount Vernon estate to Jefferson and Adams' study of agricultural design and Madison's understandings of conservation. Andrea Wulf speaks at the home of 18th century botanist, John Bartram, whose garden was visited by many delegates of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia.
Andrea Wulf is the author of The Brothers Gardeners and co-author of This Other Eden. Her writing has appeared in several publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and The New York Times. For more information, visit andreawulf.com.
