April 6 HAH Roundtable Is on Sound in the Garden

authorStaff Writer on Mar 29, 2024

The last Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons roundtable of the season will be on “Sound in the Garden: Adding, Welcoming & Enjoying This Important Feature.”

The discussion, which is open to nonmembers free of charge, will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 6, in the HAH John LoGerfo Library at the Bridgehampton Community House.

Bringing sound into the garden can involve bells and wind chimes, but it also includes attracting songbirds and other wildlife and using water features.

Birdsong, rustling leaves and other pleasant garden sounds bring tranquility, meditation, calm and joy, according to HAH, which says that garden sounds can also create a barrier from unwanted noise.

HAH board member Michael Longacre will share his focus on sounds made by one’s environment and how they change throughout the day, particularly the sounds of wind and animals. Board member Pamela Harwood will moderate.

The discussion will include water sounds such as ponds, waterfalls, fountains, pools and birdbaths, insect noises from buzzing bees and other pollinators, nighttime sounds such as crickets and owls and how to block noise pollution.

HAH will also play video and audio files with beloved garden sounds.
