This project is made possible, in part, through Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program, with public funds provided through the NY State Council on the Arts with support from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the NY State Legislature.

THE NEW LEAF RESTORATION DISCUSSION SERIES hosts speakers and discussions relating to gardening and the environment and is sponsored by the New Leaf Restoration, Butterfield Library, and the Desmond-Fish Public Library.

THE NEW LEAF RESTORATION: In 2017 a 10.8 acre pasture at the corner of 9D and 403 in the town of Philipstown was donated to the Town of Philipstown by OSI and Scenic Hudson. The site has all the prerequisites, including a spring for irrigation, to support productive, varied, and successful gardens. The mission of New Leaf Restoration, Inc. is to plan, implement, and restore the pasture into collaborative intergenerational gardens and a community resource for the entire town.
