Umberto Pasti: A Garden in Northern Morocco

Italian writer and horticulturist Umberto Pasti’s passion for the wild flora of Tangier and its surrounding region led him to create his world-famous garden, Rohuna, where he has transplanted thousands of plants rescued from construction sites with the aid of men from the village.

With its stunning vistas and verdant fields, Rohuna is a garden of incomparable beauty with the mission to preserve the botanical richness of the region. Captured in luminous detail by celebrated photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo, Eden Revisited: A Garden in Northern Morocco shares the other-worldly beauty of this special and unique place for all the world to see, to be published in September 2019 by Rizzoli.

We are privileged to have Pasti introduce his new book in this talk at the Garden Museum while he is in London, to share the story of Rohuna only as he can, giving an enticing glimpse into the garden he has lovingly created and maintained for the last twenty years.
