Enjoy the beauty of Mohonk’s gardens while gaining insight into how they are created and maintained as Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s Master Gardener Program hosts its annual Mohonk Garden Walk and Luncheon on Wednesday, June 30 at the Mohonk Mountain House, in New Paltz. Garden enthusiasts will embark in groups of approximately 15 people on a two-hour walking tour of Mohonk’s formal flower gardens, annual and perennial beds, and greenhouse. The tours are guided by an Ulster County Master Gardener or a member of Mohonk’s Landscape and Garden Staff.
Tours begin between 10:00am and 10:30am followed by a buffet style lunch served at 12:00 noon in the West Dining Room that will feature guest speaker, Greg Draiss. Draiss,  is an accomplished journalist, photographer and Garden Center buyer for Adams Fairacre Farms.
 
The fee is $60.00 per person, which includes the luncheon. Pre-registration is required no later than Friday, June 25. Participants should plan on arriving early as traffic can back up at the gate. Valet parking is available at the Mountain House.?
