Our very own Brouwer House gardens will be featured on this year’s Stockade Association Art and Nature Garden Tour. Schenectady’s oldest home, the Brouwer House is a vibrant centerpiece of Schenectady city culture, filled with authentic character. The 1730s home is the only colonial-era Schenectady house open to the public, and possesses evocative, walled gardens.
Cornell Master Gardener Christopher Kirksey has spent the last two years working in the Brouwer House’s extensive shade gardens, creating a blossoming gem in the city’s historic center. His work with native and rare plants and flowers is sure to dazzle and delight on the Tour.
Elsewhere on the tour, you can stroll the charming historic neighborhood and be welcomed into private gardens normally hidden from public view. The “Art” will feature works by artists from Living Resources‘ Carriage House Art Center, individually curated to complement “Nature” in each unique garden and public space. In case of rain, art will be exhibited in sheltered locations along the tour route.
