On Friday, June 17th and Saturday, June 18th, The Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack hosted their Sixth Annual Much Ado About Madoo, celebrating 50 years of organic gardening.

The event commenced with a Garden Cocktail Party on Friday, where guests were treated to an advanced preview of the Garden Market, which included a first-class gathering of vendors.

Throughout the soiree, guests could browse through a selection of goods from Hunter, Pennoyer Newman, Bloom, Madison James, Kent & Bond, Broken Arrow Nursery, Glover Perennials, and many more.

The Honorary Chairmen for the evening were the notable Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan, while Chairman of Sotheby's Inc., Jaime Niven, ran the riveting Live Auction. "A garden is a great place for people to convene," Doonan explained to Hamptons.com. "There's no shopping mall out here, so a garden gives a place for people to come together and join in conversation."

"The Hamptons ain't all about the Kardashians, it's about nature which is fab," added Adler.

In addition, a one-of-a-kind Casa Dragones Tequila lounge welcomed guests into a garden that featured a 1970s raw wood bar from Wyeth. Casa Dragones Tequila's marketing manager, Teal Étoile Black, and the talented bartender served their delicious "Pink Panther" specialty drink that had guests returning all throughout the night. Madoo's Summer Studio had six prints by Robert Dash and poet James Schuyler on display from their 1972 collection.

The Garden Market on Saturday had guests pouring in from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to shop and socialize through the aesthetically gorgeous setting. At 12 p.m., ticket holders had the opportunity to attend a Talk in the Garden Luncheon with Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, author of Green Metropolis: The Extraordinary Landscapes of New York City as Nature, History, and Design and Catie Marron, author of City Squares: Eighteen Writers on the Spirit and Significance of Squares Around the World. At 3 p.m., attendees could listen in on a storytelling and music performance, led by a graduate trio from the Perlman Music Program that was aimed for four to eight-year-olds and their families.

The Madoo Conservancy is dedicated to the study, preservation and enhancement of Madoo, the ever-evolving garden with historic structures, established in 1967 by Robert Dash. The Conservancy hopes to effervescently and ceaselessly engage and inspire the Hamptons community in the love of the garden.

The Madoo Conservancy is located at 618 Sagg Main Street in Sagaponack. For more information, call 631-537-8200 or visit www.madoo.org.
