Through the documentary, Miller journeys to iconic Farrand gardens engaging designers, scholars and horticulturalists in a spirited dialogue about the meaning and importance of this ground-breaking early 20th-century woman. Lynden Millers experience as New Yorks City most prominent public garden designer is woven into a wide-ranging biography of Farrands life and times.
