Event description
Join The Horticultural Society of New York's educators for a tour of two unique gardens at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park.

About this event

Take a Seasonal Stroll with The Hort!

Come and enjoy a walk through unique garden spaces, all at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park along the Hudson River. See everything in bloom right now, and learn from the Hort's educators what goes into the planning and care of the gardens.

In the kitchen garden, we'll explore herbs and vegetables and discuss what's in season. In the pollinator garden, we'll explore native flowers, grasses, and trees, and the many local species they support.

We'll be happy to answer your burning botany questions and offer gardening advice as we take a leisurely stroll through the gardens. Come to learn something new, to ask a question, or to simply take in the beauty of the gardens on a spring day.

We can't wait to see you in the garden!

What to expect:

Please dress comfortably for the weather and some walking.

This is an outdoor event. We will cancel by 8 am via text message in the case of inclement weather.

Directions:

The entrance to Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park is located at 145th St. and Riverside Drive (another pedestrian entrance is located at 138th st). For the tour, please meet us outside the greenhouse, across from the track, next to the community garden.
