Program: “Monastic Gardens: Begged, Borrowed, and Stolen” Part 2. Much of Western gardening tradition starts here, 900 years before the Black Plague, and owes its aesthetic to Ancient Persia. Throw aside preconceived notions of the dark ages and explore an era that is steeped in eroticism, sensuality, and strict religious dogma, all of which influenced the European agricultural economics.
