Tribute Orchard

Apples on an apple tree

A beautiful fruit tree orchard has been planted near the organic vegetable garden, on a sunny hill next to Hempstead House overlooking the Long Island Sound. The orchard not only enhances the Preserve’s grounds – it is a resource for our horticultural education programs, and its produce of fresh, healthy fruit will be donated to people in need throughout our community.

Honor your family or memorialize a loved one with a living tribute of a fruit-bearing tree that can be enjoyed today and for generations to come. The orchard is comprised of apple, cherry, peach, and pear trees. A tax-deductible donation of $2,500 covers the cost and ongoing care of one tree and a plaque that can be inscribed with your custom message.

Please make your donation online or contact Melanie Dunbar, Development Manager, at 516-570-2236 or

Thank you!
