Book Launch: The Gardens of Los Poblanos by Judith Phillips

Join Los Poblanos and UNM Press for the launch of Judith Phillips new book, The Gardens of Los Poblanos. Landscape designer and garden writer Judith Phillips recounts the history of Los Poblanos' world-renowned gardens and demonstrates the ways in which the farm's owners, designers and gardeners have influenced the evolution of this unique landscape. Phillips showcases how the changes in landscape style and content are driven by cultural expectations and climatic realities, and she discusses how the gardens of Los Poblanos have helped preserve the deep agrarian roots of the village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. Although plants are always a focus for Phillips, she demonstrates how gardens are more than plants and how plants are much more than mere fillers of garden space.

Guests are invited to arrive at La Quinta any time after 5:30pm. Welcome remarks will be made at 6:15pm. Light and hors d'oeuvres will be served and beverage offerings will be available for purchase in the Library Bar.
