The film follows award-winning public garden designer Lynden B. Miller as she explores the remarkable life and career of America’s first female landscape architect, Beatrix Farrand (1872-1959). Farrand was responsible for some of the most celebrated gardens in the United States and helped create a distinctive American voice in landscape architecture. Despite the exclusion of women from formal landscape education and the difficulties they faced in starting businesses, Farrand persevered and implemented garden practices that are widely respected and utilized today. She created gardens for the rich and powerful, including John D. Rockefeller, Jr., J. P. Morgan, and President Woodrow Wilson, but she also was an early advocate for public gardens and believed strongly in the power of the natural world to make people’s lives better.
