Three Great Holiday Events at the Madoo Conservancy You Won't Want to Miss!


Umberto Pasti, Eden Revisited: A Garden In Northern Morocco
Lecture and book signing
Sunday,  December 1.
12:00 P.M.
$20.00 for Madoo members.
$30.00 not yet members.

Join Madoo in the summer studio for an enlightening talk by Italian writer and horticulturist Umberto Pasti. He’ll discuss his world-famous garden, Rohuna, set on a stony hillside high above the Atlantic ocean south of Tangier that is the subject of his latest book, Eden Revisited, with stunning photography by Ngoc Minh Ngo. Pasti’s passion for the wild flora of Tangier and its surrounding region led him to create Rohuna, where he has transplanted thousands of plants rescued from Moroccan construction sites.

Pasti also helped a pair of young, local men create NOW On the Ocean, a small, furniture company. The men have learned carpentry and are designing and producing home and garden furniture made from branches of Arbutus. Their rustic furniture inspired by English seventeenth century pieces with free-form shapes and bright shiny colors is much-in-demand (see below).
