Hoosick Blooms 2019 Tour takes place on Saturday, July 20th from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. Six private and very diverse gardens and farms will welcome visitors on the Hoosick Blooms 2019 tour. Following a watercolor map created especially with an eye to beautiful views, participants on this self-driving tour will see unique gardens tucked into the rolling hills of Hoosick and neighboring communities.
Three properties on the tour, Jermain Hill Farm, Berle Farm and the Historic Barns of Nipmoose, are conserved as Forever Farmland by the Agricultural Stewardship Association and the Fraser/McDonald House has received designation as an official Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. The Fraser site is also the birthplace of Simon Fraser who became a renowned Canadian explorer.
Hoosick Blooms 2019 benefits CiviCure’s fund for the renovation of the historic Wood Block Building and Opera House. We welcome CiviCure board member Melodee James; Manager of Grants and Programs for CiviCure Jayne Stokes; and Executive Director, Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) Teri Ptacek - who will tell us about the Forever Farmland Supper by the Agricultural Stewardship Association.
