Tour of Irvington’s O’Hara Nature Center


On Tuesday, October 21, 2014, Maureen DePaoli, assistant to the Village of Irvington Superintendent of Parks and Recreation, and GCI past president Barbara Defino provided an overview of the Center’s history and programs and gave a tour of the gardens. IHS Senior/Girl Scout Amy Friendlander spoke about the Center’s educational materials. Like at many of our public events, guests of members were welcome to join us at 170 Mountain Road.

For more information about the O’Hara Nature Center, please visit the Village of Irvington site.

Annual Garden Fair & Plant Sale a GCI Tradition

What should I plant in the shade? Does this plant like to be wet or dry? Should I let it grow or pinch it back? Will the deer eat it? Every year, on the Saturday before Mothers Day, Garden Club members help guests to our Garden Fair and Plant Sale at the Lyndhurst Greenhouses choose plants and provide tips on care that, we hope, will contribute to the success and beauty of many gardens in the area. An added bonus: the daylilies, coleus and hostas that are unsold are donated to Lyndhurst to enhance the plantings at this National Trust property.
