Located in the lower Hudson Valley in New York, we welcome garden groups and individuals to come visit our arboretum-botanical garden. It is 18 years in the making, with several specific collections like the nut grove, Chinese garden, Japanese garden, and American garden, in addition to a diverse collection of unusual edibles, and hardy cactus...to name a few.

If you ever wanted to see how a botanical garden begins, this is a good place to visit. We are small operation, with many areas under development, but we have, we think the most diverse selection of plants north to be found in Ulster County.
