For nearly a century, the Garden Club of Virginia has been instrumental in researching and preserving many of these sites across the state. As a result, numerous beautifully restored historic gardens are now accessible to the public. Will Rieley is a landscape architect with Rieley and Associates in Charlottesville and landscape architect for the Garden Club. He will lead this class in exploring the restoration work at a number of significant gardens and detail how the research was conducted, including the uses of computer technology to analyze historic landscapes at such sites as Monticello and Poplar Forest. This class takes place March 11 and 18 from 5:30–7:00 p.m. and costs $50 for VHS members and $60 for nonmembers.
