The Life and Gardens of Beatrix Farrand DVDThe Life and Gardens of Beatrix Farrand Documentary DVD

By Karyl Evans

This is the first documentary ever produced about the life and gardens
of the most successful female landscape architect in 20th century
America. This compeling film chronicles the life of Beatrix Farrand, the
niece of Edith Wharton, who grew up in the privileged world of the East
Coast elite and fought through the challenges of working in a male
dominated profession to design over 200 landscape commissions during her
remarkable 50 year career. The film takes the viewer on an inspiring
journey across the country as we explore more than 50 Farrand
garden-related sites and discover how her design work is still relevant
today. 40 minutes.
