Bedrock Gardens is a twenty-acre sculpture park, botanical garden, and cultural center, and also the private home of Jill Nooney and Bob Munger. It is situated on an abandoned dairy farm in southern New Hampshire. It began as a private sanctuary, where Jill could experiment with garden design and fabricating outdoor art. It became a garden experience designed as a journey along a ¾ mile path with places to go, a path to get there, and many stops along the way, such as two long intersecting vistas, a pond, Tea House, 100-foot-long Wiggle Waggle (shown above), rock garden, GrassAcre (an acre of ornamental grasses), Torri, and Parterre garden. Many pieces of sculpture occur along the way, including some hung from the tree canopy and one under the water.

The works are made predominantly from old farm equipment, disassembled and reconfigured. Historically, New Hampshire was a farming region and that forms the bedrock motif for much of the work. Equipment that may have worked this property appears again as art on the property. Rust is the color of dirt.

1.5 LA CES™ Professional development hours will be available to attendees, pending approval.
