City Green: Public Gardens of New York


4/11/18 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm




Ladew Gardens , 3535 Jarrettsville Pike, Monkton, MD

Event Information:

Public horticulture in New York City is rich and diverse. Many public gardens, such as the New York Botanical Garden, the High Line and Wave Hill are well-known. Others remain relatively undiscovered, including Green-Wood, Louis Kahn’s Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, the Chinese Scholar’s Garden on Staten Island, and community gardens that started their lives as dangerous, garbage-strewn empty lots. In addition to a wealth of different design styles that range from traditional to contemporary and naturalistic, public gardens play an increasingly significant role in the quality of urban life. They also reveal a fascinating history, having been nurtured, preserved, and sometimes literally saved by the passionate efforts of individual citizens and visionary gardeners. Jane Garmey is the author of Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley, Private Gardens of Connecticut, The Writer in the Garden, Great British Cooking: A Well-Kept Secret, and Great New British Cooking. She has written about gardens and interior design for Architectural Digest, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Elle Decor, and 1st Dibs, and for many years was the garden correspondent of Town & Country. Born in England, she lives in New York and Cornwall, Connecticut. Jane's latest book will be for sale.
