The Philipstown Garden Club, a member of the Garden Club of America, has been lovingly tending to Boscobel’s Herb Garden since the 1960s. To show appreciation for all of their efforts and contributions to the Hudson Valley environment and most specifically to the maintenance and upkeep of Boscobel’s Herb Garden – one of its most appealing visitor attractions – Executive Director Steve Miller presented the PGC with a check for $2,000 this past spring. It continues Boscobel’s annual support of the Club.

Miller stated: “Our partnership with the Philipstown Garden Club is deeply valued. Every Tuesday when I look out my office window, I see their members diligently tending what is certainly an endearing part of Boscobel’s outdoor ‘exhibits.’ Our visitors find the Herb Garden a special treat as there are few, if any, like it in the area. The Philipstown Garden Club is a leading contributor to what makes Boscobel so unique and inviting. We thank them for all their hard work and dedication to our garden’s health and beauty.”
