As part of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month, Long Hill is collaborating with the Japan Society of Boston to celebrate Japanese culture. The Sedgwick family, who owned and cared for Long Hill from 1916 to 1979, collected Japanese artifacts and Japanese plantings as Mabel Cabot Sedwick was an accomplished gardener and the author of The Garden Month by Month, and her husband, Ellery Sedgwick was a noted author and editor of The Atlantic Monthly. When Mabel passed in 1937, Ellery married Marjorie Russell Sedgwick, a rare plants specialist and the combined creative vision of these two women led to the design of Long Hill’s enchanting gardens. With the many Japanese artifacts and plantings, Long Hill is excited to celebrate Japanese culture through music, arts and a garden tour highlighting the Japanese plantings during the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month in May.
On Sunday, May 22nd, join us for a very special garden tour led by Stephen Schneider, Doctor of Horticulture and Grounds and Northeastern University.
Registration is required; spaces are limited.Register
