Welcome to NELDHA
NELDHA's Annual Reception was a Great Success

Beautiful weather set the stage for NELDHA's Annual Reception at the historic MIT Endicott House in Dedham, Massachusetts on April 25, 2014. Members and Friends enjoyed  the beautiful grounds and mansion while reconnecting with old friends and meeting new friends.

Our speaker was Director of Cultural Resources for The Trustees of Reservations, Lucinda Brockway. Cindy's talk was Where Do You Fit In?  Landscape Preservation and Design in a Changing World. She spoke about such wide ranging sites Native American mines and burial grounds to the highly designed landscapes of the Golden Age and the challenges facing present day managers..

We wish to thank you to Heidi Kost Gross, Maureen O'Brien and Janis Porter, the Committee who organized the event. Also a special thanks to Heidi Kost Gross, Janis Porter and Lynette Tsiang for their generous donations.

On March 27, 2014, Friends of Fairsted will present a lecture by Robert Yaro entitled “The Shaping of Regions, The New York Regional Plan and the Origins of Planning in America.” Yaro will discuss how regional thinking - an integrated approach to infrastructure growth, economic development, and environmental protection, has influenced growth and change in the Northeast. He will discuss how the visionary thinking of early leaders in the field, including Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., contributed original planning solutions to enhance the quality of life in both urban and suburban settings.

 
Mass Hort and NELDHA Lecture a Great Success!

NELDHA and the Massachusetts Horticultural Society's co-sponsored  lecture by award winning landscape designer Julie Moir Messervy on January 23, 2014 sold out! The audience enjoyed a wine and cheese reception and an opportunity to chat and mingel with fellow guests. Messervy, always entertaining and inspiring, shared ideas and images from her new book, Landscaping Ideas that Work. Raffle winners took home great landscape related prizes.

A special thank you to the event supporters:

This event would not have been possible without the extraordinary efforts of the following people: Maureen Horn and April Daley from Mass Hort, and Heidi Kost-Gross, Jon Hogan, Maureen O'Brien and Janis Porter from NELDHA.
