Garden Conservancy Supports and Protects American Gardens with Open Days Program and Events

A local organization’s annual garden tours are in full flower

Summer springs eternal with the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program. The organization, which is dedicated to preserving exceptional American gardens for the public’s edification and enjoyment, hosts self-guided tours of privately maintained gardens from early spring through the fall; this month, three local spots open their gates to the masses. On the 8th, visit Eastward in Brewster, which showcases long borders that front horse paddocks; and Pawling’s Brine Garden, whose highlights include a naturalistic six-acre garden and arboretum. Rocky Hills, a Mount Kisco landscape that is open on Oct. 22, boasts a variety of unusual trees, including black walnut, stewartia, and magnolia. Admission to each garden is $5. Call 888-842-2442 or visit for hours and directions.
