We look forward to exploring Sycamore Hill Gardens, the home of George and Karen Hanford. The property was originally a fully functioning dairy farm with over 300 head of Jersey cattle. Sycamore Hill Gardens is now 40 acres of diverse trees, shrubs, perennials, and spring flowering bulbs. The gardens are divided into a variety of distinct areas and include Asian and European statuary, as well as koi ponds, stonework, a formal garden, a hedge maze and several large open spaces with expansive views. They have planted the majority of the remaining farmland with over 10,000 native trees, 10,000 native shrubs,  and 180 acres of grassland to create wildlife habitat. This turned close to 300 acres of former cropland into one of New York State’s largest Conservation Reserve Program sites and is helping honeybees, as well as our native bee population.

Sycamore Hill Gardens design, plant, and maintain the gardens themselves, with the very welcomed help of family, friends, and community neighbors. Currently, they rely on the amazing efforts one full time person, and any part timers and volunteers that come their way. 

NYSNLA's Professional Development/CNLP Committee has arranged for an informative guided tour of the property. Following the tour, attendees will be allowed to do a little exploring before we conclude and go enjoy some social and networking time.
