Welcome to the Oak Spring Garden Foundation!
The Oak Spring Garden Foundation is the extraordinary legacy of Rachel Lambert Mellon. Bunny Mellon was a lifelong collector of exceptional books, manuscripts and art on plants, gardens and landscapes. She was also a world-class gardener of international stature with a limitless curiosity and appreciation of the natural world.
The gifts of Bunny Mellon – her residence, garden, estate and Library – are at the heart of the Oak Spring Garden Foundation. Central to its mission is to inspire and develop leaders in plant and garden-related studies and practice through fellowships, internships, residencies and workshops.
We’re thrilled to be sharing our first newsletter and look forward to updating you each month on our new programs, upcoming events, and highlights from the Library and gardens. Thanks for tuning in and help us spread the word about Oak Spring!
