Trip to visionary garden, famous farmstead planned for June 13

The Garden Education Center of Greenwich is preparing for a trip to two top-notch properties on June 13 with tours of Chanticleer Gardens and Hortulus Farms.

The first stop is Chanticleer, which has been called the most romantic, imaginative and exciting public garden in America. The garden is a study of textures and forms, where foliage trumps flowers, the gardeners lead the design and even the drinking fountains are sculptural. For more details about the garden, visit gecgreenwich.org.

The next stop is Hortulus Farm where participants will enjoy a box lunch and tour of the famous 100-acre, 18th Century farmstead and nursery, created and owned by event designer Renny Reynolds and garden writer and author Jack Staub. It has been called both “a garden of world-class charm” and “one of Pennsylvania’s secret treasures.”

The property is composed of 20 separate formal gardens, woodland walks and dramatic Bucks County vistas where farm animals wander amid the historic barns and outbuildings, creating a bucolic backdrop to the horticultural vision of these two creative men.

The trip is $185 for members and $195 for non-members, but space is limited and registration is required. Participants will leave the Garden Education Center at 7 a.m. and return at 6 p.m.

The trip takes place rain or shine.

To register, visit gecgreenwich.org or call 203-869-9242.
