Old Lands, New Gardens
This year we are pleased to share six extraordinary private gardens new to the Garden Tour. Each of these gardens was created by the current owner—the oldest dates back 40 years and the most recent was begun in 2012. Flat lands and hills, woodlands and open spaces are all featured in this rich presentation of what is possible in a garden plot with vision—and hard work!
Along with the 18th century garden maintained by the Garden Club of Amherst, the Simeon Strong House will feature the work of Ecological designers Andrew Kilduff and Tim Tensen from TK Design Lab. They will show how their work aligns with garden design and provide a short presentation and display offering tour-goers an opportunity to explore ideas about home gardens as unique plant communities emphasizing how these communities will change as homeowners and designers respond to the effects of climate change. They will be present from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to meet and answer questions from interested garden tour participants. In addition, their nearby office will be open on the 30th for tour-goers to stop in.
