Beyond Peter Rabbit

From the May 9, 2022 Presentation
Linda Foster
Peter's Garden

Most of us are familiar, or at least have heard of, the Peter Rabbit children's books written by Beatrix Potter. However, how many of us know about the life of Beatrix beyond Peter Rabbit? Linda introduced us to this amazing woman who throughout the years was an author, illustrator, painter, business woman, farmer, naturalist and conservationist. She left a long and varied legacy. We thank Linda Foster for sharing with us the life of this most interesting and talented woman, Beatrix Potter.

Colleagues of the late Jo Cornish Gerwig from Farmers Insurance volunteered their time and provided the materials to prepare the MPH gardens for the season. Jo was a long-time member of PLHS and the daughter of Louise Cornish, one of the founding members of the society. The generosity of the Farmers group is greatly appreciated.
