    Garden#1 "Step into Eden", Brewster"
    …..on this six-acre estate located on Mill Pond in Brewster.  An English garden inspired by the owners’ time abroad features climbing roses, a sea of alliums in spring, and a vibrant border in summer.  Walk down an allée of linden trees lined with foxglove leading to a custom stone bench.  From there you get a great view of the large pond teeming with fish, water lilies, and a multitude of aquatic and wetland plants.  Surrounding the pond you’ll find a native pollinator border buzzing with life.  A gentle stream leads to a Japanese-inspired shaded path full of evergreens, miniature pines, maples, and miniature ginkgo.  A newly installed greenhouse surrounded by a large cutting garden provides color and fragrance, while a large vegetable garden produces bundles of delicious organic produce.  Shading the mossy ground and intricate stonework, the property’s mature trees are any plant lover's dream, rounding out a garden that begs to be explored. Open for tours: July 13th & July 14th.

    Garden#2 Behind the Scenes of an Organic Farm - Halcyon Farm, Brewster
    Look for a wondrous bank of white panicle hydrangeas on historic Old Kings Highway in East Brewster. Halcyon Farm is small-scale regenerative vegetable operation and farm stay B&B.  Founded by Lucas Dinwiddie in 2000, the land has been transformed into a fully operational market farm with an amazing array of vegetables and flowers. The property has been thoughtfully and deliberately laid out to maximize growing area while allowing B&B guests to feel relaxed, inspired and free to explore the farm.  We believe that healthy soils and food contribute to a healthier overall community.  Halcyon is a model for what is possible on small acreage and a daily reminder of the value of small farms and locally grown food.  Tour the farm with the owner, view the lovingly restored farmhouse, hear about Halcyon’s operational approach, and buy some of the fresh, organic, artisan produce. 
    Open for tours: July 13th & July 14th.
