Monday, October 24, 2022 The Battery Gardeners’ Luncheon celebrated 20 years of horticulture and the new gardens of Battery Playscape, showcasing plants and play.
In 2002 The Battery Conservancy commissioned a horticultural masterplan for the park’s 25 acres. Today it hosts over 240,000sf of perennial gardens, a transformation generated by your support and the determination of our Battery Gardeners.
Warrie Price, Battery Conservancy President & Founder offered stories, lessons, and future plans at The Battery inspired by her mentor and friend, Lady Bird Johnson. Her quest to bring nature’s beauty to sustain all Americans is as relevant today as it was on October 22, 1965, with the signing of the Highway Beautification Act.
To honor two decades of achievement, we are grateful to the Bisignano Family for their generous underwriting of the Luncheon so that 100% of gifts supported our dedicated gardeners. As is our tradition, we thanked our donors with a handmade terra cotta pot.
