June Garden Tours at My Farm

June garden tours are well underway at my farm.

Occasionally, I agree to open my gardens for private walking tours. Most of them are conducted in the spring and early summer. Earlier this week, we welcomed a group from the New York based private investment firm, Fir Tree Partners, and winners from their recent auction. And yesterday, a lovely group of students from the New York Botanical Garden School of Professional Horticulture came by for a visit. Through its highly distinguished two-year program, the NYBG combines academics with hands-on training, externships, field trips, and special lectures, to prepare its students for positions in both public and private sectors.

Unfortunately, because of my busy work schedule, I wasn’t able to lead these tours myself, but both groups were in good hands with my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, who guided them through the allees and gardens - enjoy these photos.
