Start either day off by joining us for a special presentation by guest speaker Jenny Bakshi, of Urban Oasis Landscape Design, at Van Vleck House & Gardens.

Last year, hundreds of enthusiastic garden-lovers from all over the tristate area participated in this important fundraising event to benefit the historic Van Vleck gardens.
