Our mission is to enhance the skills, knowledge and pleasure of gardeners, horticulturalists and garden lovers of all ages and experience through inspiring, useful, and enjoyable workshops, lectures, and classes.
A gardener never stops learning. There is always something new to discover in the world of horticulture and garden design. At Hollister House Garden we are continually researching topics that are of interest to our audience, and we engage knowledgeable plantsmen and designers to share their expertise. Today, I am asking you to support this outstanding educational program to teach and inspire gardeners and garden lovers.
This year, Hollister House Garden presented more programs to a greater number of people than ever before. We introduced new people to horticulture and to the pleasure of walking the outstanding garden here. We will continue to expand an exciting calendar of lectures, as well as workshops in Botanical art, photography, and flower arranging, as we add new enticing classes. In 2022, our annual Garden Study Weekend returns, bringing together some of the most important voices in horticulture and garden design for a thrilling day. All these initiatives increase our knowledge and appreciation as gardeners.
I have been immersed in this public garden since its founding almost 20 years ago. On every visit I learn something. It might be how to prune a chartreuse-leaved spirea (hard), or how great scarlet dahlias look with plum-colored foliage repeated in a border. I long to go to every Barn Talk, absorbing expertise and sharing horticultural ideas. The Garden Study Weekend is the happening of autumn on my calendar.
Your support makes it possible for us to continue offering splendid programs. Importantly, it helps us keep our fees reasonable for everyone.
Please be generous.
