A must on your Lynchburg Garden Day itinerary! An avid gardener and one of America’s first landscape designers, Jefferson was enthralled by the natural world, recording his ideas and plans for the ornamental landscape at Poplar Forest in his journals and letters. Learn about his designed landscape and the ways in which he incorporated popular European landscape features in his plans for Poplar Forest and more. The restoration of Jefferson’s ornamental landscape is an official project of the Garden Club of Virginia.
Admission to Poplar Forest on Garden Day is free for Lynchburg Garden Day ticket holders and Poplar Forest members.
