Peter and Sofia Blanchard

awards_placekeeper_2017_pic1.pngFollowing the death of his father in 2000, with the guidance of the Garden Conservancy Peter Blanchard decided to make Greenwood Gardens, the landscape surrounding his childhood home in Short Hills, New Jersey, accessible to the public. He and his wife Sofia quickly mastered the complexities of establishing and operating the property as a membership organization dedicated to preserving the architecture, gardens, and landscape of this heritage estate while at the same time fulfilling their mission to foster respect for nature by working with others to promote conservation and stewardship of the land.
