Outreach and Education

Research, educational outreach, and promotion

At the height of its membership, the Saratoga Horticultural Research Foundation had approximately 400 members engaged in research, educational outreach, and promotion of selected cultivars. The Foundation provided the findings of its research to members of the nursery trade, landscape architects, students, teachers, and other researchers.

Plant Sales and Festivals

The Foundation was known for its spring plant sales and Fall Festival, during which the public could tour the Foundation’s nursery and purchase native and unusual plants. Most of the outreach activities were coordinated and carried out by the Associates of Saratoga Horticultural Foundation, the SHRF’s docent and fund-raising group.
