Garden Gatherings - A Series of Short Talks

Meet us in the Moss Arts Center lobby by the mural wall for short talks and interesting conversations.

“A rose by any other name….,” it is apparent that William Shakespeare was fascinated by plants as many are noted in his work. Stephanie Huckestein, Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Hahn Horticulture Garden, will talk about plants mentioned in Shakespeare’s work, particularly those which Shakespeare considered magical, mystical, and romantic.

Stephanie received her bachelor’s degree in Horticulture and her master’s degree in Education from Virginia Tech. She has worked at the Hahn Horticulture Garden for 17 years, first as Head Horticulturist, then in her current position as Education and Outreach Coordinator. She enjoys giving tours of the Hahn Garden to the many groups that visit. Stephanie plans and organizes the youth and adult education programs as well as other events. She also teaches the Indoor Plants course and co-teaches the Home Gardening course for the Department of Horticulture.

This project has been made possible through the generous support of the School of Performing Arts, the Humanities at Virginia Tech, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA), the School of Visual Arts, the Moss Arts Center, and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT).
