Digging Deeper: Subtle and Mysterious Beauty—Asian Inspirations in a Hamptons Garden

Digging Deeper: Subtle and Mysterious Beauty—Asian Inspirations in a Hamptons Garden


Sun, Jul 30 
9:30 AM-11:30 AM

Spend the morning in Yugen, an extraordinary twenty-acre garden in East Hampton that has evolved over more than twenty-five years. The owner, who now works to manage global public health crises, began as an expert collector of Japanese suiseki, small, naturally-formed stones that suggest larger landscapes or objects. This led to more stones in the garden, many on a massive scale, and finally to a passion for horticulture. Yugen is comprised of thirty one individual gardens, including the 1491 Meadow—native plants that predate the arrival of Columbus in the New World—and Jurassic Park—plants that would have existed here in pre-history. To complement the Chinese inspirations explored in the Open Days program later the same day, this garden owner will focus on the many Asian influences at Yugen.
