America's Romance with Gardens

English-Garden.jpg
Exeter Area Garden Club

On The Point, author and master gardener Thomas Mickey talks about his book America’s Romance with the English Garden.   The book centers on the idea that in the late 1880’s Americans had a type of garden inspired by the media.  It includes his research over the past 20 years of public relations materials like brochures, catalogs, videos, and press releases to see what was being promoted besides the company’s product or services.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
