Visit to Meadowburn Farm and Greenwood Gardens (Class is Full)
Meadowburn was the Vernon, NJ country home of Helena Rutherfurd Ely, a pioneering figure in American horticulture at the turn of the 20th century. She was a founding member of the Garden Club of America and author of influential gardening books. In this garden Ely developed the hands-on horticultural knowledge that informed her writing. Meadowburn, which remains relatively unchanged to this day, was recognized as one of the finest gardens in the country. After lunch at Meadbowburn, we will visit Greenwoood Gardens in Short Hills, NJ. In the early decades of the last century, multi-millionaire Joseph P. Day established the gardens as a private retreat from the hectic pace of New York City. Here his family cultivated annual and perennial gardens and commissioned pergolas, terraces, a summer house, and tea house. After years of decline, the property was sold in the 1950s to Peter P. Blanchard Jr., a gentleman farmer, and his wife Adelaide Frick who added evergreen formality and whimsical ornaments to the landscape. Though still undergoing restoration, Greenwood Gardens is now one of 16 exceptional gardens in the country endorsed by the Garden Conservancy. We will leave from the Arboretum on a coach bus. Park in the meadow to the left of the Kiosk. Lunch is included in the cost of the trip.
