NYBG Plant Based Holiday Train Village

NYC New York Botanic Garden christmas train

Do you love a holiday mini village?  Here is what I want to know, why do the holiday’s bring out the mini village builders in us?   I’m not a village builder these days, though I have to admit I come from some hard-core (legendary) builders and I have spent some significant hours urban planning, installing tiny trees and spreading fake snow.

If I can get my hands on a copy, I will share with you the insanity that goes down at my parents house – it is certainly worth a post.   But until then, I am enjoying the version that the New York Botanic Garden created for the holidays.  It’s made completely of plant material!!

If you are in NYC area, you can see it in person until Jan 2nd.  I wish I had been able to spare the time to visit when I was there for Thanksgiving.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
