The Garden Conservancy is the first national organization devoted to preserving exceptional American gardens for the public’s education and enjoyment.
“We conserve beautiful gardens because they are a vital part of our nation’s cultural heritage.”
The Garden Conservancy invites the public to visit America’s finest private gardens. The Conservancy’s Open Days Program encourages appreciation of “gardens as living works of art.”
The Brine Garden – Duncan & Julia Brine
Our 2020 Open Day, the 30th Anniversary of the Garden, has been canceled due to the Covid virus.
This naturalistic, six-acre garden connects diverse ecological areas on a former dairy farm. Many mature native shrubs and trees combine with select non-native plants to form a series of areas with views, joined by meandering paths. Duncan Brine, who works with his wife and partner, Julia, at GardenLarge, is a landscape designer and instructor at the New York Botanical Garden. Anne Raver of The New York Times writes that the Brine Garden is “a dreamlike landscape.” In its 30th year, the garden has been published in books and magazines, and featured in Hudson Valley garden books.

A suggested donation of $10.00 helps support the Garden Conservancy and Friends of the Great Swamp.
