The Charlotte Garden Club has a remarkable line up of landscape legends, horticultural heroes, and innovative florists to educate and entertain you this program year. They were secured last spring, before COVID-19.

Please know that we are still hosting these experts; however, they will be virtual presentations through Zoom for the remainder of 2020. 2021 formats are to be determined.

So stay engaged with us and mark your calendars for a fabulous, yet different-than-expected year!

Wing Haven Lecture Series

January 3, 2020 - March 26, 2020

January through March 2020

“Every plant has a story, just like every human being has a story. And that story needs to be told” – Ryan Gainey.

Help us kick off our 2020 Lecture Series during a showing of “The Well-Placed Weed: The Bountiful Life of Ryan Gainey” on January 2. We’ll be staying cozy indoors while it is chilly out, enjoying popcorn and learning about the life and complexities of Ryan Gainey. Enjoy the full feature film (the original 78-minute theatrical version of the film, a different version than the 54-minute edit that was broadcast on PBS) and plan to engage in a facilitated discussion afterward.

DISCLAIMER: In the words of Ryan himself, “This ain’t Walt Disney.” This documentary is raw and contains harsh language.

Eighteen programs to choose from in this year’s lecture series! Browse the list below and follow the links to find more information on each lecture. Program registration includes admission to Wing Haven’s gardens.
