1 p.m. EST | NYBG

Nestled on 13 acres in Greenwich, Connecticut, Sleepy Cat Farm represents a 25-year creative collaboration between owner Fred Landman and noted landscape architect Charles J. Stick. Together, they have fashioned a garden of surprise and intrigue and many influences-an undulating, ever-changing landscape that unfolds in a series of rooms and pavilions, pathways and pools, statuary and staircases. Join us for a fascinating conversation as Landman and Stick explore their approach to gardens and design, now beautifully captured in the new book Sleepy Cat Farm: A Gardener’s Journey.

A self-taught gardener, Fred Landman serves on the Garden Conservancy’s board of directors. Landscape architect Charles Stick is known for his classical yet contemporary designs. His eponymous firm provides conceptual design, master planning, historic renovation, and site supervision for clients ranging from large-scale estates to commercial developments.
