There are 35 acres of plantings with 12 specialty gardens including herbs, flowers, vegetables, a rock garden, perennials, grasses, ground covers, vines, winter plants, a container garden and more. If enough members attend I can ask for a guide who will lead us through the various gardens for an hour or so and answer all the questions we’ll have. There is also an extensive gift shop to visit. We won’t see the colors of spring or summer but there will be rich autumn shades and many hardy plants still in bloom. If you plan to join us, please let me know by Monday, October 16 so I have time to inform the Gardens if we’ll have enough visitors for a guide.

After all that walking we’ll need something to eat. Ithaca has a famous icon: Moosewood Café. Known for its publicity, well known diners, the “Woodstock cult”, the must have cook book of Moosewood favorites and the extensive vegetarian menu that appeals to everyone. Guaranteed you will find something delicious. Moosewood is located at 215 North Cayuga Street (Dewitt Mall).
