The Garden Conservancy

P.O. Box 219
Cold Spring, NY 10516


The Garden Conservancy was established in 1989 by the distinguished American gardener, Frank Cabot, and in the 20 years since its founding, the organization has done more than any other national institution to save and preserve America's exceptional gardens for the education and enjoyment of the public.

In partnership with individual garden owners as well as public and private organizations, the Conservancy provides the horticultural, technical, management, and financial expertise needed to sustain these fragile environments and ensure long-term stewardship of natural assets so essential to the aesthetic and cultural life of our communities.

The Conservancy's public education and training programs build on the organization's experience and understanding of garden preservation. Its Open Days program brings this message to a broad base of visitors. Now in its 20th year, Open Days provides behind-the-scenes access to some of this country's finest private gardens, offering visitors the rare opportunity to spend time in beautiful spaces not normally available for public viewing. This year, more than 300 private gardens in 22 states will open for a very limited time to offer garden enthusiasts the chance to explore, first-hand, examples of outstanding design and horticultural practice.
