Several NCGC members attended Wave Hill’s 2021 Gardeners’ Party on Thursday, September 30th to celebrate Louis Bauer. For nearly two decades, Louis has dedicated himself to Wave Hill, first arriving in 1994 to work under Marco Polo Stufano, and returning in 2014 as Director of Horticulture. He epitomizes the distinctive style of gardening Wave Hill is known for—intimate, adventurous and plants first! Under Louis’ inspired leadership, Wave Hill remains at the forefront of American horticulture; his impact will last long into the future.
