Open Days, Meadow, Open Days Special Program, Garden Extras
The restoration of my landscape has been the goal for the fifteen years of living here after a move from Chicago. There are four restored ecosystems: wetlands, waterfall, domestic area of native grasses, and woodland. The last section of restoration was started last fall with eliminating dead trees and then new seeding. This year goldenrod was weed-wacked and new trees planted. The landscape was featured in the September 2017 issue of New York Cottages & Gardens with a five-page spread (images are available). Native restoration workshops have been held here through the Columbia Land Conservancy, Spencertown Academy, and Berkshire Botanical Garden.
GARDEN EXTRA: Linda will be exhibiting a collection of her own prints of native insects, which includes nearly 80 prints created over a 20 year period.
Directions: Address is 5015 County Route 7, Spencertown.
From Chatham, south on Route 203, stay right onto County Route 7/Crow Hill Road in Spencertown. The garden is exactly 1 mile south of the Post Office. The driveway is on the right after Pratt Hill Road. Look for pillar with #5015.
From Hillsdale/Route 22 North, turn left onto Route 21 and then right onto County Route 7/Crow Hill Road. Look for #5015 pillar on left. If you reach Punsit Hill Road on the right or Pratt Hill Road on the left, you have gone a block too far.
(For Garmins, use Austerlitz Township as our town; for Google Maps, use Chatham).
Please park on Punsit Road or side of driveway if not used.
