Join the staff of the Berkshire Botanical Garden for a guided tour of the cutting edge gardens of The High Line, New York Cityâ€™s newest park. Recently completed, the High Line is built on an elevated 1930â€™s freight rail structure on Manhattanâ€™s West Side. These extensive gardens echo the wild, self-seeded landscape that grew up on the structure after the trains stopped running. The landscape is designed by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, with the consultation of Hollandâ€™s champion of New Wave gardening, Piet Oudolf. From the High Line travel to the gardens at Wave Hill in the Bronx and enjoy a guided tour of this 28 acre estate, the vision of famed horticulturist Marco Polo Stefano. Tour these remarkable gardens, including the conservatory, alpine house, and special collections. This guided garden tour is for plant lovers with an interest in both the old and new.
The cost of this guided tour is $85 for BBG members, $95 for non-members.Â Reservations are essential (www.berkshirebotanical.org). Dress for the weather, because this is a rain or shine event.Â Please also bring a bagged lunch.
