We will celebrate the re-modeled sensory garden with music by Rip and The Sleepy Hollow Boys, ice cream from The Blue Pig available for purchase, an official ribbon cutting ceremony, and more!
Diane Uhle, Teatown’s native plants gardener, will be onsite to answer any questions about the garden you may have.
Free and open to the public, no registration required!
Cindy’s Garden was dedicated in 2010 to the memory of Cindy O’Hanley, a cherished volunteer Nature Guide and leader of Teatown’s Little Tree Huggers and Knee Hi Nature groups. “Mrs. O” shared her love of nature and, especially, plants with many budding naturalists. Teatown has since worked with our master gardener, Diane Uhle, to transform this space into an educational sensory garden.
What is a sensory garden?
A sensory garden encourages interaction with the plants and insects that occupy that space, to stimulate the five senses. It is a quiet, contemplative space, meant for interacting with nature and learning by tuning into our senses. All are invited in to smell a leaf, watch a butterfly, compose a journal entry, listen to the insects’ conversations, or simply relax and let nature come to you.
