The Garden Conservancy is a national nonprofit supported in large part by individuals. The Garden Conservancy introduced the Open Days program in 1995 to share gardens with the public, providing easy access to outstanding examples of design and horticultural practice. The Open Days program is America’s only national private garden-visiting program and is made possible by the work of hundreds of volunteers nationwide.
