Oak Spring Gardens
OSGF actively maintains Bunny Mellon’s garden as she managed it herself, a standing tribute to her mastery of gardening and her simple yet elegant style. Bunny planned and tended all the details with great care, from the gravel pathways, to the crabapple tree arch and the profusion of herbs, vegetables and simple wildflowers.
OSGF hosts horticultural interns to learn and practice garden design and management alongside the OSGF garden team. The inaugural garden interns arrived in the Summer of 2017, in partnership with the New York Botanical Garden.

Bunny Mellon once said, “Too much should not be explained about a garden. Its greatest reality is not reality, for a garden, hovering always in a state of becoming, sums its own past and its future. A garden, like a library, is a whole made up of separate interests and mysteries.”
