Hyde Park Based Documentary to be Aired on PBS
We know the Hudson Valley is filled with hidden gems. This might just be one of them and it's getting some well-deserved recognition.
The Beatrix Farrand Garden Association, located in Hyde Park on the grounds of FDR's home, will be featured on WNET/Thirteen on Monday, June 1st.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the Beatrix Farrand, she was a "landscape gardener whose work defined the American taste in gardens throughout the first half of the 20th century" according to the Garden Association website.
PBS will be airing the Beatrix Farrand’s American Landscapes documentary, directed by Stephen Ives and produced by Insignia Films. The documentary follows public garden designer Lynden B. Miller as she learns about "the remarkable life and career of America’s first female landscape architect—Beatrix Farrand. Farrand was responsible for some of the most celebrated gardens in the United States and helped create a distinctive American voice in landscape architecture."
Other PBS stations will also be airing the documentary. You can find a schedule for programming on the Beatrix Farrand Garden Association website.
