Sycamore Hill Garden Ramble 2017

CENTRAL NEW YORK READS ONE BOOK invites you to be transformed by the magic of Sycamore Hill, a private garden just on the outskirts of Marcellus. Ramble at your leisure across almost 40 acres of a botanical wonderland that one has to see to believe. In this grand, yet informal setting, corridors of grass beckon your through a series of unique garden spaces. One secret garden follows another!

You will find it hard to imagine that a little over twenty years ago Sycamore Hill was a dairy farm. Still in flux, the garden remains in harmony with the natural world. It is a bird sanctuary and a wildlife refuge.

The Garden Ramble is a fundraiser for CNY Reads, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building community through reading. Your $37 donation will benefit the CNY Reads mission and includes a picnic meal prepared by Daniel’s Grill in Marcellus.

The owners of Sycamore Hill will be on hand to share their history in creating the garden and to answer your questions. As a special bonus, one or two cast members from the Rehouse Arts Center will engage you with a short performance from The Secret Garden, their June stage production.

Dates are:

Thursday, June 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Wednesday, June 21 from 4:30 p.m. to dusk

Tuesday, June 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Sycamore Hill is open to the public only a few days each year. Participation in each Garden Ramble will be limited to 35 people. Viewing the gardens in small groups lends an intimacy to your visit that makes it all the more special. The garden is not difficult to walk through, but participants must be able to go up and down two or three steps.

To receive either a digital or paper registration form, contact Alan NaPier (see below) by email or telephone. Print, complete, and mail the form with your payment to the designated address on the form. Registration forms must be received no later than two days before the Garden Ramble you wish to attend.
