6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Where: 189 Main Street

The 300 Committee Land Trust and Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries are hosting the final talk in their 2014 Winter-Spring Speaker Series at the Falmouth Historical Society’s Hallett Barn education center. Timothy Boland, director of the Polly Hill Arboretum on Martha’s Vineyard, will present the illustrated talk, Polly Hill Arboretum — “Faith in a Seed”.

The legendary horticulturist Polly Hill started the Arboretum by planting a seed in 1958. The internationally recognized collections today include the national collection of Stewartia, which grow among a dazzling array of rhododendrons, magnolias and several other rare plants. Boland continues Hill’s dedication of growing plants from seed. His talk will include details about recent plant expeditions to Japan and the southeastern US and the exciting plants that continue the living legacy of Polly Hill.

The talk is free and open to the public. More information at 508-540-0876.
