  • Chanticleer’s Executive Director R. William Thomas Join Chanticleer’s Executive Director and Head Gardener R. William “Bill” Thomas for a visual tour and behind-the-scenes look at what the Washington Post calls “one of the most interesting and edgy public gardens in America.” Chanticleer, once the home of the Rosengarten family, is known for its residential-scale plant combinations featuring foliage textures and colors, its wide variety of containers, and its imaginative homemade furniture. This is a garden where the staff are the designers, competing with each other and with the horticultural world to design an intriguing, visually pleasing, and environmentally responsible garden. Bill Thomas will offer insights on what inspires this special place. The Art of Gardening: Design Inspiration and Innovative Planting Techniques from Chanticleer will be available for sale and signing following the lecture.
