The Garden Conservancy Open Days
Saturday, September 14, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Visit a private garden in Spencertown.
The restoration of my landscape has been the goal for the fifteen years of living here after a move from Chicago. There are four restored ecosystems: wetlands, waterfall, domestic area of native grasses, and woodland. The last section of restoration was started last fall with eliminating dead trees and then new seeding. This year goldenrod was weed-wacked and new trees planted. The landscape was featured in the September 2017 issue of New York Cottages & Gardens with a five-page spread (images are available). Native restoration workshops have been held here through the Columbia Land Conservancy, Spencertown Academy, and Berkshire Botanical Garden.
GARDEN EXTRA: Linda will be exhibiting a collection of her own prints of native insects, which includes nearly 80 prints created over a 20 year period.
