Join landscape curator, Kate Kerin, for a lively 1.5 hour walking tour exploring this powerful work of art. An iconic postwar design. Innisfree is now recognized as one of the world’s ten best gardens and listed at the highest level—exceptional national significance—on the National Register of Historic Places. In a story akin to the Great American Novel, learn about the people and ideas that shaped this living landmark. Find inspiration for your own garden exploring Innisfree’s timeless design strategies and timely, nature-based maintenance practices that create a memorable landscape experience with a remarkably small staff.
This program is offered in conjunction with New York State’s Path Through History Weekend.
