Located in the lower Hudson Valley in New York, we welcome garden groups and individuals to come visit our botanical garden. It is 16 years in the making, with several specific gardens like a hardy cactus, pitcher plant bog, unusual edibles, to name a few. If you ever wanted to see how a botanical garden begins, this is a good place to visit. We are small, with many areas under development, but we have, we think the most diverse selection of plants north to be found in Ulster County.
