Dr. Post spoke at the Palisades Library in September 2012, marking the 50th Anniversary of Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking book, Silent Spring. Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring at her Colesville, Md. home, which is now a designated historical site and serves as the headquarters of the Rachel Carson Council.

This year, Dr. Post’s topic will be Rachel Carson’s unconventional and beautiful gardens, which were ahead of their time by working with the natural environment. The gardens remain as Rachel Carson designed them.
