Who We Are

The Beatrix Farrand Garden Association is dedicated to honoring and sharing the environmental and design legacy of Beatrix Farrand.

By restoring and preserving Farrand's garden at Bellefield and offering educational programs, the association inspires visitors and increases public appreciation of her pioneering work.

As the earliest existing example of her private work, the garden at Bellefield is a striking illustration of Farrand's masterful design, presented in an intimate and accessible setting. As a living testament to Farrand's influential horticultural legacy -- not only as a designer, but as the world's first female landscape architect -- the garden provides an ideal platform to tell her story through lectures, tours and educational programs.

Bellefield mansion is part of the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Sites, and the Beatrix Farrand Garden Association is a formal Partner with this National Historic Site.
