The View from Federal Twist – a book talk at Hollister House

‘It woke me up,’ says Thomas Rainer, writing about Federal Twist in the Foreword to James Golden’s new book. Making his garden woke Golden up too. The site was terrible—a waste of derelict woodland, shade, and heavy, wet clay. As Golden thought his way through the constraints of the place, the emerging garden triggered new awakenings, and led him to a new way of thinking about gardens, nature and himself. In this illustrated book talk, Golden will tell us about this new way of thinking, and how it changed his life.
