GWA Meeting at Mt. Cuba This Morning!

What a beautiful morning to be at Mt. Cuba. The Garden Writers Association Region II Meeting had an amazing backdrop of the former home and family estate of Mr. and Mrs. Lammot du Pont Copeland. (Check out these incredible photos!)

In 1935, the Copelands built a stately Colonial Revival manor house near the village of Mt. Cuba, near Wilmington, Delaware. The Copelands were prominent members of the community. Mr. Copeland served as President and Chairman of the Du Pont Company, while Mrs. Copeland was a leader in many community and cultural organizations.

Today, the Copelands’ legacy lives on, elegantly portrayed in the formal gardens, woodland landscapes, pastures, and fields that are now a part of Mt. Cuba Center. Their estate is a treasure of beauty and inspiration as well as a message of steadfast commitment to ecologically sound gardening practices, and responsible land stewardship. To learn more about Mt.
