Arboretum Garden Tour and Plant Sale

The Jane E. Lytle Memorial Arboretum’s 15th annual garden tour and plant sale will be held on Sunday, July 10 from 12:30 PM to 5 PM. Once again this ever-popular summer event will offer participants a private, self-guided tour of a half dozen spectacular gardens in the Croton-Cortlandt area. The tour coordinators, Laura Seitz and Gill Mader, have selected a wide variety of landscape settings created by local residents who have generously offered to open their private gardens to the public.

Among the sites on the tour are:

A small village yard with a combination of native, vegetable, herb, and flower plantings along with a rock garden;
An artist’s larger English garden of berry bushes and flowering shrubs, and historic acreage along Croton’s woods studded with rose bushes, gazebos and a spreading orchard,
The organic Community Garden, established two years ago and cooperatively developed with the Croton village government ,which furnished the water and fencing. Now, 23 Croton residents are seeding and tending individual vegetable plots in this community enterprise. The Croton Girl Scouts donate the vegetable produce from their area to the Croton Food Bank.

Tickets are on sale for the tour at $20 per person, or for an Early Bird Special of two for $35. To make reservations in advance call Laurie Salzberg, 271-5871, or Lisa Cohen, 827-9805. The tour is limited to 200 participants, so purchase your tickets today.

Tour maps and any remaining tickets will be available on Sunday, July 10, from 12:15 to 1:30 PM at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church, 6 Old Post Road, Croton-on-Hudson.

All tour profits benefit the Croton Arboretum and Sanctuary, Inc. a volunteer, non-profit organization that provides environmental stewardship for 20+ acres of wetlands and woods at the Jane E. Lytle Arboretum in Croton-on-Hudson. For more information visit
