Fall Garden Getaways

Pat Sommerstad

Whatever the season, a garden holds that season’s best display of nature’s beauty. If you’ve “traveled” with Pat before, you’ve seen 10 gardens at their spring and summer-flowering best. This time she visits 10 new gardens in their late summer and autumn beauty – the riot of rusts, oranges and reds in the fall, and the stark patterns of tree branches against the sky in winter. You’ll take home comprehensive information about the 35 public gardens in the immediate New York area, and discover the best restaurants and other attractions close to those gardens we “visit.” Prizes will be awarded and all garden lovers are invited.

Yoga at the Garden

Susan Weston-Bonnici

Increase your flexibility, strength and balance. Release tension and stress during the cold winter and enjoy deep relaxation. Explore the gentle movements of yoga, warm your muscles and joints, increase your range of motion, and prepare for all aspects of your “work” in the garden. No prior yoga experience is necessary to reap many benefits, but those with yoga experience will enjoy a gentle, therapeutic practice.
