Dig Deeper Into the Gardens With Tours
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed some of the monthly self-guided walking tours we post here, but did you know that you can join a tour led by a docent volunteer guide or a staff member? These one-hour tours cover a variety of different topics ranging from medicinal plants to container gardens. Small-group conversations give you the opportunity to ask questions, share your thoughts, experience perennial favorites and uncover lesser-known spaces. Our upcoming tours are described below. At this time, tours are only outdoors, limited to five participants and everyone must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth.
