The Garden Conservancy invites you to visit the private garden of 
Linda B. Horn, in Spencertown on Saturday, September 14.

“The restoration of my landscape has been the goal for the fifteen years of living here after a move from Chicago. There are four restored ecosystems: wetlands, waterfall, domestic area of native grasses, and woodland. The last section of restoration was started last fall with eliminating dead trees and then new seeding. This year goldenrod was weed-wacked and new trees planted. The landscape was featured in the September 2017 issue of New York Cottages & Gardens with a five-page spread (images are available). Native restoration workshops have been held here through the Columbia Land Conservancy, Spencertown Academy, and Berkshire Botanical Garden”.

GARDEN EXTRA: Linda will be exhibiting a collection of her own prints of native insects, which includes nearly 80 prints created over a 20 year period.
