Garrison, New York
The Garden Conservancy invites friends and neighbors to Our Backyards — a special one-day tour showcasing the passion and very personal, relaxed style of our region's gardeners — a group of accomplished designers, garden writers, community activists and environmentalists working and living in the Hudson River Valley, home to Garden Conservancy headquarters.
Join us for our picnic lunch in Deborah Needleman's garden and continue on with self-guided tours of some of our favorite backyards, including the gardens ofSharon & Chris Davis, Grace Kennedy & Tim D'Acquisto, Marilyn Young & Eric Erickson, and Joan Turner. You'll receive directions to these and several more surprise visits upon receipt of your registration. The day will also feature "Green Tutorials" by photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo and writer Cynthia Kling and will conclude with a wine reception at the home of Bill Burback & Peter Hofmann at Garrison's Landing on the banks of the Hudon River.
For your convenience, park at the Garrision Train Station in the morning. A big yellow school bus will shuttle you to the various gardens. Directions provided upon receipt of registration.
Registration Fee: $40

I am giving a talk on garden photography this sunday, and I absolutely hate speaking in public.
