Tune in tonight and learn about the stunningly beautiful Stuck gardens in Westport that he created, his projects in the Himalayas, his career in “wearable” art and what it takes to create a garden that is also a piece of installation art.

Note: the photograph by Sheila Carroll  is of an uncommon SACHEM butterfly nectaring in the Stuck Gardens.

Play balll!!!! Writer and researcher JOHN FOX has written a fascinating and entertaining book that investigates why humans are so passionate about ball games. His research took him around the world to witness some amazing ball games. Tune in tonight and learn about the absolute chaos of ba’ which is played the day after Christmas in the Orkneys. John Fox also talks about the jeu de paume, the old predecessor to tennis, still played today. Finally Fox describes the incredible ancient Meso American ball game called ulama that was once played in elaborate stone courts throughout Central America. Fox’s book is titled THE BALL: DISCOVERING THE OBJECT OF THE GAME
