Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
Though the garden is largely dormant during the winter, if you look carefully, you will glimpse striking examples of color and life. Here, some handsome fungus grows on a fallen tree trunk near the ancient Roman columns at the bottom of the Vista:
K Greene, co-founder of the Hudson Valley Seed Company, will address heirloom and open-pollinated seed selection and how we can help our plants thrive after germination.
Niki Jabbour, the award-winning author, radio host, and garden expert from Halifax, Nova Scotia, will share her amazingly productive techniques and approaches to success in her own home food garden.
David Mattern, who is responsible for the ornamental vegetable and cutting gardens at Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, Pennsylvania, will focus on healthy plants as the key to production and attractiveness. Please join us for this most informative event.
Ours is the only free holiday light show around, which we see as part of our mission to further Samuel Untermyer’s progressive vision. We are grateful for the many community groups who volunteer their time as greeters and servers and are instrumental in the event’s success.
Stephen F. Byrns, President
