The Garden Conservancy: Preserving Exceptional American Gardens

For inspiration, I regularly visit public gardens with my family during the gardening season. I just found out about the Garden Conservancy, "a national, nonprofit organization founded in 1989 to preserve exceptional American gardens for public education and enjoyment."

The Garden Conservancy currently supports the preservation of gardens across the country, including the following that appear to be within driving distance of Chatham, New Jersey:

Greenwood Gardens Short Hills, NJ
Hollister House Washington, CT
Rocky Hills Mount Kisco, NY
Steepletop Austerlitz, NY
Van Vleck House & Gardens Montclair, NJ

The gardens look incredible. I have lived in Morristown for two years and have never visited Greenwood Gardens - in fact I wasn't aware it even existed. I really have no excuse for not making it there this year. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to check it out.
