Lynchburg Garden Day at Poplar Forest Tuesday, April 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. A must on your Lynchburg Garden Day itinerary! An avid gardener and one of America’s first landscape designers, Jefferson was enthralled by the natural world, recording his ideas and plans for the ornamental landscape at Poplar Forest in his journals and letters.
