Cocktails in Great Gardens – The home of Peter Bevacqua and Stephen King
Jul 11 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

This event is nearing capacity.  For ticket and and wait list availability, please call the Garden at 413.298.3926.

Peter gardenStep through the gates of this garden and you’ll find yourself in a private magical world.  This two-acre garden feels much larger because of its division into many garden rooms. One area unfolds upon the next, each with its own unique sense of style and individuality. Key to the garden’s style is the focus on form and texture. Texture derived from the selection and juxtaposition of plants whose form, leaf shape, and color create a tapestry that remains interesting long after flowers fade.

The garden is featured in the recently published book: The Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley, by Monacelli Press

Hors d’oeuvres, a cold refreshment, and the warm summer light of late afternoon are the perfect companions to take in some of the area’s most spectacular private gardens through our Cocktails in Great Gardens series.  It’s a rare opportunity to roam these private spaces with the gardeners themselves that you will not want to miss.  Tickets are limited and reservations are required.  Call 413.298.3926 for more information.
