Liberty Hyde Bailey:
New Agrarian Philosopher and “Patron Saint” of American Gardening

Webinar presented by John Linstrom, Series Editor of The Liberty Hyde Bailey Library for Cornell University Press

One hundred years ago, naturist and horticultural botanist Liberty Hyde Bailey was sending the future both a warning and an invitation—a warning about ecological exploitation, and an invitation to a fuller way of living as stewards of the land. John Linstrom will discuss Bailey’s prescient “earth philosophy” in relation to our current moment and the call to good stewardship that we still need today.

John Linstrom is Series Editor of The Liberty Hyde Bailey Library for Cornell University Press and a doctoral candidate in English and American Literature at New York University. He coedited The Liberty Hyde Bailey Gardener’s Companion: Essential Writings (Comstock-Cornell UP, 2019) and prepared the centennial edition of Bailey’s The Holy Earth (Counterpoint, 2015). His poetry and nonfiction have appeared in numerous journals, and he lives with his fiancee in Queens, NY.
