In The Garden Series
In the Garden tours will offer the public the unique opportunity to experience particular collections at Bayard Cutting Arboretum alongside one of our professional horticultural staff; Nelson Sterner- Executive Director, Kevin Wiecks  Landscape Curator, Joy Arden- GIS Specialist, Jen Campbell- former Farm Manager and current Farm Advisor, and Susan Randazzo  Gardener and Curator of the Four Season Garden. Tours will include a walking tour and an in-depth discussion of specific topics related to the given collection. The focus will be on the horticultural practice, species choice, design, history, and future plans for each specific collection.  Workshops will be conducted by Frances Reidy. Frances is the sole proprietor of Dryad Tree & Shrub Diagnostics LLC, a Plant Health Maintenance company operating for more than 25 years in East Islip, NY. Frances consults with clients to assess tree and shrub conditions to help preserve trees in our environments. A proponent of PHM methods, Frances also works to reduce and eliminate pesticides to bring back the declining beneficial insect and pollinator populations. In addition to consulting at BCA, Fran counts the Queens Botanical Gardens, the High Line, and the MET Cloisters among her clientele. Past clients include Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Battery City Parks.  Fran won the ISAs 2018 True Professional Award, one of Five winners.
