The Garden Conservancy is an American nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving exceptional gardens and landscapes.

Founded in 1989, by Frank Cabot, the Conservancy has since helped a number of American gardens to develop preservation strategies, organizational structures, and funding plans. In some cases, the Conservancy takes the lead in transitioning the garden to a sustainable, nonprofit status. The Garden Conservancy is headquartered in Cold Spring, NY. Recent projects include:

Open Days[edit]

Since 1995 the Conservancy has sponsored annual "open days" at hundreds of private gardens across the United States, offering the public an opportunity to visit private gardens not generally open for viewing. Conservancy members receive a copy of Open Days Directory, an annual regional guide to open garden days across the United States.
