Our 2022 Courtyard Design Focus: A Sensory Garden

NYSNLA has, once again, transformed the Courtyard of the Horticulture Building into a Sensory Garden, where the public can enjoy experiencing and learning about this type of garden as they take in the Fairgrounds. 

What is a Sensory Garden? A sensory garden is a garden that has a collection of plants and other elements that are appealing to move or more of the five senses: sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch. Sensory gardens should be accessible for all people to enjoyed--disabled and non-disabled.
