Join Allen this Earth Day for a celebration of Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th birthday. Allen will discuss the parallels of his life in England with insights from the Father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted.
Olmsted’s 1852 (180th anniversary) publication Walks And Talks Of An American Farmer In England was an inspiration to Allen as he created Moss Mountain Farm.
