MANHATTAN CHAPTER OF THE NORTH AMERICAN GARDEN SOCIETY
The Manhattan Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society, founded in 1987, is a group of gardening enthusiasts who are interested in an eclectic range of plants, with emphasis on alpine and rock gardening selections. Our programs cover a broad spectrum of special interests such as rock and alpine, succulents, woodland, bog, and planted walls, as well as trough and container gardening. While we’re based in New York City, we welcome members in any location!
