The New Amity Workshop celebrates All Things Cultivated and Wild.
In the fall of 2013, with two kids in tow, we made the move from Queens, New York to the historic hamlet of Amity in Warwick, New York.
For years we had pined for the rural life and dreamt of warm summer nights with the moonlight at our feet and jelly jars filled with fireflies. Inspired by the energy of our new landscape and a talented community of craftspeople, we began building on our backgrounds, Chris in soil and water science and Erin in landscape architecture, to create something new.
Designing with Nature
We focus on products that bring people into contact with nature and are beautiful. A number of these will be specifically related to gardening. Our collection of products is always growing and will include more of our own designs as well as collaborations with local artists. Stay tuned for more. You can also join our mailing list and we'll let you know about all of our happenings before they go online.
Erin spent childhood summers milking goats on a piece of land in upstate New York that happened to be farmed by nuns. She received a Bachelor's degree in Ethnobotany from Vassar College and a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from Cornell University. Erin has worked as a landscape architect in New York City for the last ten years.
Chris was born just outside of Houston, Texas. He earned his Bachelor’s in Environmental Biology from Columbia University and a Master of Science degree in Soil and Water Science from the University of Florida.
