To show appreciation for their efforts and contributions to the Hudson Valley environment and specifically to the maintenance and upkeep of Boscobel’s Herb Garden — one of its most appealing attractions — Executive Director Steve Miller recently presented the PGC with a $2,000 check.

“Our partnership with the Philipstown Garden Club is deeply valued,” Miller said. “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, so we thank them for all their hard work and dedication to our garden’s health and beauty.”
