Hidden in the Hills: North Hill Garden

June 7, Saturday, 11 a.m.

In connection with the exhibit Flora: A Celebration of Flowers in Contemporary Art, BMAC is pleased to offer BMAC members an excursion to a horticultural wonder hidden in the hills of southern Vermont.

North Hill Garden is internationally recognized as an one of the finest private gardens in North America. The home of Joe Eck and his husband Wayne Winterrowd, who died in 2010, North Hill became world-famous through Eck and Winterrowd’s popular jointly-written books chronicling their exploits in the garden, including A Year at North Hill (1995), Living Seasonally (1999) and Our Life in Gardens (2009). According to Eck, the mission of North Hill Garden is “to demonstrate ornamental horticulture at its highest level in the context of the Green Mountains.” Roger Swain, host of the PBS television series The Victory Garden, said North Hill Garden “is of such quality and diversity that it rivals any in Europe. But there is nothing derivative about North Hill; it is American gardening at its best.”

Admission: Free, open to BMAC members only and limited to 20 guests. Call 802-257-0124, ext. 101 to make a reservation. Not a member? Click here.
