From Yard to Garden: The Domestication of America's Home Grounds 

When: Fri., Sept. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2008
Price: free

In the early 1800s, American front and backyards were used for growing food and performing chores -- not for pleasure. In his book From Yard to Garden: The Domestication of America's Home Grounds, local landscape architect Christopher Grampp charts the development of yards from work zones to fun zones to the apex of suburban paradise. Meet him at Mrs. Dalloway's (2904 College Ave., Berkeley) on September 12. 7:30 p.m.
