Cultivating Place: The High Line of NYC, with Director of Horticulture Richard Hayden
This week, our second episode on gardens and green spaces of New York City, getting us primed for The Garden Conservancy’s inaugural Garden Futures Summit being held at the New York Botanical Garden on Sept. 29th and at gardens across the city on Saturday, Sept. 30th.
This week, we head to The High Line – a 1.45 elevated linear garden - one of New York City’s green space highlights. We’re in conversation with Richard Hayden, Director of Horticulture at The High Line since 2022. A horticulture and public garden enthusiast, Richard is all about connecting people with the power of plants. Join us!
