Saturday, September 19, 2009, please join the Upstate Gardeners’ Journal in our continuing tradition of an autumn tour of beautiful upstate New York countryside. Departing Buffalo in our luxury motorcoach, we’ll travel east to just south of the quaint village of Avon, for a stop and shop at Palmiter’s Nursery—definitely a destination for those in the horticultural know.
Next up is Sara’s Garden Center in the college town of Brockport. Sara’s is known for its remarkable perennials selection, and as a special treat, we’ll have a chance to see masters of dry laid stone masonry in action.
For lunch (and much more) we’ll be pulling in to nationally recognized Hurd Orchards in Holley for an exquisite meal prepared just for our group and featuring seasonal produce straight from the farm. We’ll have an apple tasting, too—Hurd’s grows 65 varieties!—and a demonstration on autumn flower arrangements.
Our trip home wouldn’t be complete without a visit, and some tasting, at a local winery, and maybe an antique shop along the way. Coach departs from Eastern Hills Mall in Buffalo.
