This year we're going to include two additional tables, one for SEEDS and one for GARDEN RELATED ITEMS.

For the SEEDs, please do NOT include any invasive species and make sure everything is labeled properly.

For the GARDEN RELATED ITEMS, we will include gardening tools (only in good condition), books (only gardening and plant related) and other strictly gardening related items.

ALL PLANTS should be labeled properly and again, NO INVASIVES, please.

One other note for this year's swap to keep in mind; We are going to ask everyone to take home any of their non-swapped items, whether it be plants, seeds or garden related items.

Please spread the word to your friends and family.

This even is part of the Garden Conservancy's Open Days Program:

“Drawing on my experiences designing over forty public spaces in New York City, the challenges of thirty-seven years in my own garden, and a lifetime of painting, I will talk about what I see when I look at a site – what’s there and what could be – and how I visualize what plants are needed to achieve my goals for garden visitors. Garden design is an art form and I approach it with the many tools of a painter/plantsman combined with the challenges of time and weather. In my public work, I hope to give city dwellers pleasure with wonderful practical plants throughout all four seasons that can really be maintained for the future.” In this remarkable morning, Lynden Miller will give a lushly illustrated talk on these ideas, which translate easily to private gardens. Giving life to her process, she will then help guests 'see' through her designer’s eye during a tour of nearby Innisfree Garden, which she considers a “deeply moving landscape and a truly important public garden.”

In 1982, Lynden Miller rescued and restored The Conservatory Garden in Central Park. Based on her belief that good public open spaces can change city life, she has since designed myriad other gardens and parks, including Bryant Park, The New York Botanical Garden, and Wagner Park in Battery Park City. Lynden wrote Parks, Plants and People: Beautifying the Urban Landscape, which won the American Horticultural Society 2010 National Book Award.

Rain or Shine - Plant Sale/Open Farm Day returns!

Everyone is welcome, bring friends and family!

Here's what's in store....
- Of course a bounty of beautiful hand grown flowers, herbs and veggies to take home and plant or give to important people in your life.
- Guest CSAs: North River Roasters, a local Community Supported Coffee Roaster and Back Paddock Farm who provide 100% grass fed beef and log grown mushrooms.
- Live Music with our very own farm crew member, Lauren McDonald, and guests.
- Workshare hours sign up (get the good spots!).
- New PFP Member Booth: Get “insider tips” for a more thorough orientation explaining the myriad benefits of what you’ve actually just signed up for!
- Multi-purpose art for your garden, yard, deck, windowsill or other interior places: Nine local artists will be selling handmade bird feeders, bird baths, wind chimes, vases, pots, berry bowls, baskets & other containers. You’ll recognize these artists as PFP members and some of the most dedicated volunteers who make the amazingly beautiful and collectible bowls for Soup A Bowl (our annual fall fundraiser).

Kids events:
- a Veggie piñata, make your own smoothies, arts and crafts and scavenger hunt.
- Little Brays of Sunshine – Miniature donkeys from Little Brays of Sunshine who serve as therapy donkeys and donkey ambassadors will be visiting PFP for Open Farm. These sweet calm donkeys are looking forward to meeting you.
- Make your own polenta: with Patrick and Nicholas on PFP’s bicycle powered grist mill.
- Make your own silkscreen print created by local artists: BYO clothing or cloth accessory, or we’ll provide t-shirts and aprons for a small extra cost.

And More...

- Celebrity Farm Tours: including the Meditation and Discovery Gardens(a tour every hour beginning at 10am with one of PFP’s staff).
- Tours of the Vassar Community Gardens: Not a lot people realize there are over 70 Poughkeepsie community members who have their own garden plots immediately adjacent to PFP. Each of the plots has their own unique design and purpose for the steward who has chosen to utilize this invaluable space. Some are novice gardeners, some are actual certified Master Gardeners, and several gardeners hail from a long history of family agriculture. Some of the plots are strictly used for maximum and most efficient produce consumption, some are artistically designed with long-time family heirloom flowers and vegetables, and some are experimental “works in progress” as that member explores and learns the ins and outs of gardening. This is truly a community of neighbors convening and expressing themselves using nature in some form or another.

Held during Stonecrop’s North American Rock Garden Society plant sale, Esther Wrightman, of Wrightman Alpines, will talk about the rich horticultural legacy her father, Harvey Wrightman, has left for the rock gardening community.

Explore The Chocolate Factory – Garden of Ruth Oja, a private garden in Red Hook, open for self-guided tours to benefit the Garden Conservancy.

Built on the ruined foundation of a 1895 Livingston grist mill and a former chocolate factory, this garden combines English style naturalism with the Hudson Valley ideal of the picturesque. A path of pine needles winds its way through a woodland garden of native shade plants and shrubs where thousands of spring bulbs bloom before trees leaf out. In the limited sunny areas, there are perennial gardens of roses, phlox, campanula, and bee balm. Shady terraces and woods border a brick walk, which curves downhill to old brick courtyards and gardens enclosed by restored stone factory walls. One last turn reveals the waterfall and its associated shade garden of daffodils, astilbe, foxglove, and broad-leafed evergreens. This is an organic garden living in harmony with its natural and historic surroundings. No reservations required; rain or shine.

Fee: Admission is $7 per person; children 12 & under free.

For More Information: See www.opendaysprogram.org or call The Garden Conservancy toll-free weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, 1-888-842-2442.
