General:
Like other great country houses in England Wilton House has been expanded and rebuilt over the centuries, with contributions from some of the most renowned architects working in the Palladian style. The gardens have evolved as well: in 1645 designer Isaac de Caus published etchings of his newly styled French formal Wilton Garden, set within the 21 acres of parkland that comprised the estate gardens. Features included elegant parterres bordered with clipped hedges, balustrades, galleries, statues, fountains, colored gravel walks and other walks under trellised vaults and pavilions. One natural feature left untouched was the River Nadder, and this became identified as in the English style as opposed to the highly ordered great gardens of the Continent. In the next century a footbridge based on Palladio's design for the Rialto in Venice was built over the river. The bridge complements the Palladian style house designed by architects Inigo Jones and his son-in-law John Webb. In the early 19th century architect James Wyatt re-used the provincial baroque carved limestone façade of the grotto at the end of the Great Walk, installing it on a building on the grounds known as the Old Schoolhouse. Wyatt also relocated on the grounds a 16th century porch from the earlier version of the main house, attributed to artist Hans Holbein.
The parterre was demolished and replaced by lawns, and contemporary gardens include a water garden, an Oriental garden area with linked ponds crossed by Chinese style red bridges, and a rose garden. Other public facilities include an adventure playground and a garden center. The current Earl of Pembroke and his family still own Wilton House and reside there. Wilton House was visited by Thomas W. Sears in 1908 and by the Garden Club of America's June 1929 tour to England. A complete copy of the GCA tour itinerary was printed in the Bulletin of the Garden Club of America (Fourth Series, No. 5), September 1929, pp. 6-25.
Persons associated with the garden include First through 17th Earls of Pembroke, Herbert family (owners since circa 1550); Isaac de Caus (1590-1648) (garden designer, 1632-1633); Inigo Jones (1573-1652) and John Webb (1611-1672) (architects, circa 1633-1647) and James Wyatt (1746-1813) (architect, circa 1805).

Gregory Lincoln Education Center (Houston, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
16 digital images (2015-2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
Gregory-Lincoln Education Center is a fine arts magnet pre-K through 8th grade school on a 15- acre campus with many low-income and food-insecure students. In the 2011-2012 school year 14 raised gardens beds for vegetables, berries and herbs were installed and planted; the curriculum is called the Cultivated Classroom. Students grow organic food that they prepare and eat while learning about sustainability, science, math, reading, social studies and nutrition. Staple crops include squashes, tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and cauliflower, berries, lettuces, beans and okra, some flowers and herbs. Other vegetables are planted each year on a trial basis. The initial garden has been expanded to include four more raised beds, 20 fruit trees, a chicken coop called The Chick-Inn, a grape arbor at the entrance, and a pollinator garden. The lay-out includes a reading circle, tool shed, compost center, picnic tables, a wash station and benches. Learning about healthy eating is an important aspect of the program, including acquiring food preparation skills for a lifetime, and cooking and learning about careers in the food industry at a nearby restaurant. Helpers in the garden include school staff, Urban Harvest employees, parents, and neighborhood volunteers who participate in a monthly "dig-it" day of weeding, mulching, and additional planting. The Garden Club of Houston supports this program through financial contributions to Urban Harvest, a non-profit that promotes community gardens.
Persons associated with the garden include: Houston Independent School District (owners, 1966- ); Urban Harvest (sponsor, 2011- ); Kellie Karavias (culinary arts teacher, 2011- ); Carol Burton (Urban Harvest coordinator, 2011- ) Names (role and dates of ownership/involvement). Example: Metropolitan District Commission (playground, Victory Garden, 1953- ); City of Cambridge (Morse School, 1953- ); Carl Koch (1912-1998) (architect, 1955); Design Partnership of Cambridge (renovation architects, 1999); Jane Hirschi, Director of City Sprouts (non-profit assisting in creating and maintaining school garden, 2001- ); Patricia Beggy (Morse school principal, 2004- ); Juliet and György Kepes (enamel panels artists, 1957); Tomie Arai (silk-screened mural artist, 1999).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a copy of a book of Susan Hale Kemenyffy's drawings dedicated to Carrie T. Watson Garden Club member Lynn Perry Alstadt, and a copy of "Drawing: The Purpose," edited by Leo Duff and Phil Sawdon. The latter includes a chapter by Susan Hale Kemenyffy titled, "Landscape - Drawing - Drawiing - Landscape' (2008).
General:
The 47 acre property in western Pennsylvania had been logged, stripped of topsoil and used as a dump for garbage and burned out cars when the land and 1950's house were obtained in 1974 by two artists. Mature trees, weeds and enormous mud puddles comprised the landscape. The site has been developed with 18 named gardens, channeled water courses with a string of pools and two ponds to ameliorate the property's tendency to flood every spring, numerous hand-built bridges, and intersecting paths totaling about one mile of walkways. Outbuildings include a chicken house, a Hungarian Tea House cantilevered on a cliff in a conifer forest that overlooks one of the pools, and two artists' studios. Garden structures and outdoor furniture are painted in blues and greens that contrast with and stand out from the lushly planted grounds while sculptures created by the owners have been nestled into the landscape. Hundreds of rocks, slabs and boulders have been dug up and re-positioned to form or edge paths and ponds. Positions have been found for objects including discarded aluminum playground horses that rear up among the trees. Ceramic tiles and sculptures made by the artists contribute to the unique landscape.
An early entrance garden included climbing hydrangea, bergenia lining the walkway, pachysandra and ferns to obscure the front of the house. Later a wider walkway was dug and laid with slabs of Pennsylvania bluestone over gravel, decking and brick walls were built, and 100 feet of climbing hydrangea have been trained around the house and deck. The owners describe their highly personal gardens as naturalized Arts and Crafts designed to suit the topography. They have given fanciful names to their gardens, such as giraffe's place, polka dot garden, alpine forest, great meadow, sky garden, primrose-less path, and Steven's mountain with an elevated metal sculpture "Sirius Dog House" to mark the juncture of earth and sky and the conclusion of the garden.
Raku Place has been shared with many groups for events and has participated in Garden Conservancy Open Days.
Persons associated with the garden include Donald and Sharon Williams (former owners, 1966-1974); Steven Kemenyffy (sculptor, 1974- ); Susan Kemenyffy (artist and landscape designer, 1974- ).
