AHS welcomes the Atlanta History Center’s (AHC) own Sarah Roberts
, Vice President of the Goizueta Gardens and Living Collections as our speaker. Sarah’s topic for the evening will be “Goizueta Gardens; a transformation”.
A college internship in curation at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University sparked Sarah’s career path in public horticulture. During her years at Berry College, she spent a year on scholarship to the UK studying historic gardens, soil science and botany as part of her honors degree in Horticulture. The next five years were spent as Curator of Herbaceous Plants and Outdoor Gardens at the New York Botanical Garden. She then returned to England, completing a Diploma in Garden Design from the UK’s Garden Design School.
In 2011 Sarah returned to the US and began consulting for the Atlanta History Center which led to her current position as Vice President of Goizueta Gardens. Sarah has written for numerous publications, been featured on Martha Stewart Radio, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation, and the GardenSmart TV series.
