Welcoming A Royal Gardener to the Berkshires

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings

You rarely see men wearing ties in the Berkshires, but then you rarely see a royal gardener in our neck of the woods. The trustees of the Berkshire Botanical Garden had a cocktail party on February 12 to welcome Debs Goodenough, Head Gardener to HRH Prince Charles, who would be speaking the next day at BBG’s sold-out winter lecture in the auditorium at Monument Mountain Regional High School.  Everyone who met Ms. Goodenough (left with BBG trustee Ian Hooper) agreed she was delightfully down to earth.
