During a sabbatical from law firm Debevoise & Plimpton, Barbara Paul Robinson worked as a gardener for Rosemary Verey at Barnsley House, in Gloucestershire, England. This transforming experience taught Barbara many lessons, about gardening and life. Rosemary Verey came to gardening late in life, was self taught, wrote her first of 18 books at 62 and achieved world fame. She is also the subject of a biography Barbara will publish next spring. The final lecture in the series takes place March 21.
