Bucks County Community College announced the 16th annual Tyler Formal Gardens & Landscaping Lecture featuring Tom Smarr, executive director of Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens, to be held on Saturday, April 27, at 10 a.m. at the college’s Newtown Campus, 275 Swamp Road. 

The lecture topic is “For Love of Garden: Establishing Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens as a Community Resource.” Smarr will discuss one of the region’s great horticultural and botanical garden assets located near Valley Forge Park, and how its story began in 1968 as a loving gift that envisioned the property as a public space to explore a naturalistic botanical garden. Encompassing 48 acres of diverse plant collections, it is home to nationally-accredited rhododendrons, azaleas, mountain laurels and eastern North American plants. 

A tour of Tyler Formal Gardens will immediately follow the lecture. There will also be an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win accents for your garden.

Tickets are $15 general admission, free for students with ID, and $10 for veterans and Bucks alumni. Register online at bucks.edu/foundation/events or mail your check payable to the BCCC Foundation and the registration form to: Bucks County Community College Foundation, Tyler Hall, Room 221, 275 Swamp Road, Newtown, PA 18940.

The Tyler Formal Gardens & Landscaping Lecture is part of the Bucks LIVE! series of programs to inform, inspire and enrich the lives of greater Bucks County residents. For more information, email Professor Emeritus Lyle Rosenberger at lyle.rosenberger@bucks.edu.
