Description

The Garden Conservancy's Open Days program offers tours of exceptional private gardens. In November 2016, the Friends of the Landscape and Arboretum Program at Bard College joined forces with the Garden Conservancy to restore the infrastructure of Blithewood Garden, a historic Italianate garden designed by F.L. V. Hoppin at the turn of the century. This spread showcases Blithewood to raise awareness of the garden, as part of a fund-raising drive.
