For a week in June, the gardens and grounds of Monticello and the University of Virginia will serve as the setting for a unique educational experience in the theory and practice of historic landscape preservation. The Historic Landscape Institute will offer students an introduction to the fields of landscape history, garden restoration, and historical horticulture, using the landscapes designed by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and the University of Virginia as case studies and outdoor classrooms. Participants will engage in a forty-hour week of instruction, with the bulk of that time spent on site. Occasional, moderately strenuous activity may be required in the gardens.

Applications must be received by April 1st, 2019.
