This episode comes from one of the most majestic locations in the city, in the Cummer Gardens, under the shade of the Cummer Oak.  Patrick MacRae is the Doolittle Family Director of Gardens and Horticulture for the Cummer so he literally gets his hands dirty in garden.
Listen now to learn more about the history of these gardens, the enduring legacy of Ninah Cummer and the ambitious plans Patrick and his team have  in store for the gardens.
We will learn about Ellen Biddle Shipman, among the first female landscape architects in the country who was hired by Ms Cummer to help design her garden. 
We also discuss the extraordinary connection between Patrick, Cornell University and the Cummer.
Special thanks to Mike and the Po Boys for our theme music, "Take Me Down to Funky Riverside"
