“September Serenade” in New York Caramoor & Untermyer Gardens (1944) Edit

The Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum and DIG IT! are off on another garden bus trip visiting two stunning gardens with history, art, food and music! Leave the driving to us as we head to New York for a “September Serenade”.

20110730CaramoorWM-th
Caramoor

First stop: Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah. We’ll start with a guided tour of its many Italianate gardens such as the early 1900’s Sunken Garden and the more contemporary Sense Circle Garden designed by Catherine Ziegler. The garden tour includes experiencing a special large-scale sound art installation: In the Garden of Sonic Delights.

In Caramoor’s outdoor courtyard, surrounded by gardens and cloistered within the interior of the 25,000 square-foot Rosen House, we will enjoy Flamenco in the Courtyard with dancer Isabel del Di’a, guitarist/composer Rafael Brunn and a singer. After the concert we’ll have a guided tour of the Rosen House, the former home of Lucie Dodge and Walter Rosen, now on the Register of Historic Places. The Mediterranean style home is a museum of untold treasures including several centuries of Asian and Renaissance art. There are doors designed for a Venetian Palace built in the 1700s, 18th century rooms from private European villas and chateaux, a 17th century French library, a 16th century painted Spanish ceiling, a gilded bed that belonged to Pope Urban VIII, Gothic tapestries galore and thousands of objects of art. Then, we’ll enjoy a luncheon buffet featuring foods reflective of Spain and the Mediterranean.

AmphitheaterWalledGarden-th
Untermyer Gardens

Back on the bus, you can relax as we head to Untermyer Gardens, one of the most celebrated estate gardens in America. The estate was purchased in 1899 by Samuel Untermyer, a New York lawyer and expert horticulturist whose secret desire was to be the NYC Parks Commissioner. He hired “William Welles Bosworth, an Ecole des Beaux Arts trained architect and landscape designer, to create the greatest gardens in the world.”

Today Untermyer Gardens and Park is a Yonkers City Park and, in partnership with Untermyer Gardens Conservancy, 43 of the original 150 acres are being restored to Samuel Untermyer’s plan.

WalledGarden-th
Untermyer Gardens

We will enjoy a guided tour of the gardens as muses from an ancient past serenade us. We’ll see an Indo-Persian Walled Garden created as “Paradise on Earth” with Biblical elements such as a roofless Greek Temple of the Sky with Corinthian columns, an amphitheatre, four waterways and garden beds; the Vista Steps where 2,000 year-old monolithic marble columns frame views of the Hudson and Palisades; two terraced Color Gardens and ruins of a gatehouse and columns of a rose-covered pergola; “a stupendous rocky fantasy” topped with the Temple of Love that overlooks the Hudson; and a recently uncovered rock garden sliced by a stream with bridges.

Come join us on this special, exciting trip that will sate your every sense!

All properties have rolling terrain with varying paths to walk on such as stone steps, loose gravel, mulch, soil, bark chips, rolling lawn. Please wear sturdy, secure shoes. NO SANDALS OR HEELS. Nothing is handicapped accessible. Prepare to do some walking.

Grow, Cook, Eat: (1953) Edit

From Spade to Spatula – Winter Roots: Turnips, Rutabagas, Parsnips

Go from spade to spatula each month with Horticultural Program Specialists Gwen Montgomery and Cynthia Triolo. The series focuses on a different garden vegetable every month during the growing season and offers growing suggestions, planting tips, information on pests and diseases, new varieties and recipes. In July, Beets and Kohlrabi play a starring role, in August we’ll look at some unusual salad greens and in September you’ll learn how to save the seeds from your tomato harvest, how to preserve the fruit and what to do with all those green tomatoes. We’ll have seeds, recipes and a tasting sample to get you motivated to get out in the garden and plant.

Each session in this series is eligible for 1.5 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.

If you like to eat as much as you like to garden and want to learn more about new and different varieties of vegetables, sign up today.
