Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
It's been just a few years - but together we can celebrate the Walled Garden's emergence as a reborn Garden of Eden. This is, in fact, what a Persian garden represents. We thank you for being a part of this work and hope you will continue to support our miracle on the banks of the Hudson.
Faced with the imminent ruin of some of our mosaics, we embarked on an emergency repair operation. These mosaics have been relaid, resecured, regrouted, cleaned, and sealed. They are precious, almost unique, in American gardens.
All of this work, as well as the horticultural endeavors of our six gardeners, is supported solely by private philanthropy. Every gift - large and small - from each of our more than 500 supporters is received with gratitude in our one-room office.
What a privilege it is to have a part in restoring the grand vision of a great man who wanted to give something precious to the people. The noble majesty of Untermyer's garden inspires us every day. Thank you for ensuring that our gardens bring enjoyment and wonder to all who visit.
We look forward to your continued support and hope you will consider making a donation this year.
Stephen F. Byrns
President, Untermyer Gardens Conservancy
