ABOUT THE OAK SPRING GARDEN FOUNDATION

The Oak Spring Garden Foundation is a private operating foundation, located a little over an hour west of Washington, D.
C.
in the rural Virginia Piedmont between the Blue Ridge and Bull Run Mountains, on what was once the private residential estate of Paul and Rachel Lambert Bunny Mellon.
A devoted horticulturist, gardener and collector, Bunny Mellon cultivated an impressive collection of books and art objects over the course of her life that now form the core of the collections of the Oak Spring Garden Library.

While the estate has a long and interesting history, OSGF is a young organization that has only existed in its current form for about eight years.
The Foundations mission is to inspire fresh thinking and bold action on the history and future of plants, horticultural practice, the art and culture of gardens and landscapes, and the importance of plants for human well-being.
Its activities toward providing a public benefit include the sustainable management of a 700-acre landscape, as well as stewardship of the other legacies of Mrs.
Mellon, which include an endowment, the formal garden, the library and substantial residential accommodation.
The current President, Sir Peter Crane FRS, reports to a small but distinguished Board.

The Education and Outreach team primarily leverages the resources and learning opportunities around sustainable agriculture and plants provided by OSGFs Biocultural Conservation Farm.
The BCCF is a small, diversified vegetable operation that supplies fresh produce for the array of programs that take place onsite at OSGF by working closely with the OSGF Chef to supply short- term and long-term guests with nourishing farm-to-table meals.
Produce also supports a small Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program from May-October in which community members pick-up a curated share of fresh vegetables once a week across a 25-week season.
Importantly, the BCCF is committed to donating at least 50% of what is grown on-site to local food banks.
Since 2019, this has amounted to over 100,000 lbs of produce delivered to those in need.

Given our geographic location and the agrobiodiversity and cultural foodways in our region, we are very interested in growing and perpetuating the cultivation of heirloom crops of regional cultural and historical significance.
In addition to its high-intensity, ecological vegetable production the
BCCF has growing plots dedicated to production of seed, as well as plants used by people for a variety of purposes, including natural dyeing, paper and fiber making, and medicine.
