Please join the Philipstown Garden Club (PGC) to celebrate Garden Day on Constitution Island for a fun Family Day of events.

Events include: boat rides, visiting Anna Warner’s historic garden; flower arranging project for children provided by the Philipstown Garden Club; garden lectures from Hudson River Valley garden experts; Revolutionary War fortification tours; preview of Warner House restoration plans; hiking on the island trails; and a book and bake sale.

The PGC will host a Children's Flowering Arranging event from 10:00am - 3:00pm. This is an event that the PGC held back in 1918 on Constitution Island. Materials provided. There will be a Coloring Activity Station for the young ones to enjoy too.

Hotdogs & drinks will be available or pack a picnic lunch to eat on the historic Revolutionary parade field. Ferry schedule posted closer to event date.

Over the last century, Philipstown Garden Club has continued to fulfill its mission during the century in a myriad of ways. It has, among other things helped to save historical gardens like Anna Warner’s garden on Constitution Island.

Volunteer interpreters will discuss the history of the gardens, with a focus on the Vanderbilt ownership and the mission of the Vanderbilt Garden Association to rehabilitate and maintain the plants, shrubs, trees, and statuary in the gardens as they were in the 1930’s just prior to Mr. Vanderbilt’s death. They will also provide information about two major projects the gardens are currently undergoing: the renovation of the “Cherry Walk” and the replanting of the rose garden terraces. Visitors can also visit the 1875 Toolhouse building to look at photographs of the gardens taken during the Vanderbilt era. The Toolhouse will also be open every Saturday and Sunday when the Garden Greeters have their information table at the entrance to the gardens.

Carolyn Summers, landscape architect, author, and adjunct professor at Westchester Community College, will share the trick to a lovely garden that thrives with little or no care.

In addition, Jen Stengle, Community Educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County will follow with a discussion on The Sustainable Backyard: Five Easy Practices by offering steps that have positive impacts on climate change, waste streams and native ecosystems. Note: Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the relaxing landscape at the Winter Hill location or perhaps hike to historic North Redoubt.

The Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County are presenting a series of 3 Saturday workshops on making your garden a vibrant Hudson Valley oasis. The programs will be hosted at 3 different locations committed to the vitality of our unique ecosystem: May 3 at Lasdon Park in Katonah, June 28 at Glynwood Farm in Cold Spring, and October 25 at Hudson Highland Land Trust in Garrison.
