Field trip to Innisfree Garden, Millbrook NY

Let’s learn how we can run our new Preserve in a sustainable way with a guided Garden Tour of Innisfree Garden (Hudson River Valley Ramble). Carpools will be organized, once we know who is coming.

Join landscape curator, Kate Kerin, for a lively 1.5 hour tour exploring Innisfree, a powerful icon of mid-twentieth century design now recognized as one of the world's ten best gardens. Like the Great American Novel, Innisfree’s story involves love, loss, and overcoming adversity through creativity and innovation. Discuss the people, the inspirations, and the natural and designed features that make Innisfree such a memorable and moving place. Investigate the innovative and sustainable landscape design and management techniques that are central to Innisfree’s unique aesthetic and astonishing ability to maintain a 185-acre public garden with only a tiny seasonal maintenance staff. Learn simple yet powerful ideas home and professional gardeners can adopt. 11am. $15 for the general public.

Monday, September 15, 7 pm, Old Stone Meeting House

                Discussion of the Innisfree Garden trip.  Let’s discuss what we learned and how we can develop a sustainable management plan for our new Preserve.

October 8 or October 11 (TBD), Upper Nyack Elementary School, 7-9 pm

Public Input Session – Planning for the Hester Haring Cason Preserve

                This will be a fun, interactive public input session, where we will determine our individual areas of interest (for example – walking paths, community groups, dog park, sculpture, arboretum, water resources, etc.) and break into small groups that can begin to brainstorm ideas.

A postcard will be sent to all Village residents in late September inviting them to this session.
