Preservation Resources Overview
In addition to providing a range of different garden preservation services to specific gardens across America, the Garden Conservancy also creates and disseminates educational materials. It also serves as a nexus of resources related to the preservation of gardens. One area of focus is the conversion of private gardens into viable, self-sustaining, public amenities as part of America's cultural and natural heritage.
This section describes the Garden Conservancy's preservation handbook, Taking a Garden Public and contains samples of working documents, such as vision statements and cultural landscape report. It also offers you an opportunity to read some sample working documents, to subscribe to our periodic electronic news bulletin, Preservation eBulletin, an information-sharing vehicle intended for professionals in the field of garden preservation, and to explore a listing of links to other related resources that may be of interest.
