Four Reasons Fall Is for Members
Autumn is right around the corner, and before you sigh because that means summer is ending, I want to show all the reasons why fall at the Gardens is a very, very good thing.
5 Special Events (with discounts on tickets or purchases for members)
- Corn Maze at Chatfield Farms
- Fall Plant & Bulb Sale at York Street
- Pumpkin Festival at Chatfield Farms
- Glow at the Gardens at York Street
- Día de los Muertos at York Street
4 Places to Wield Your Membership Card
Members get 10% off at the Hive Garden Bistro, Offshoots Café, Copper Door Coffee Roasters and at the Shop at the Gardens. Look for tasty fall or harvest-themed food and drink items and, of course, autumn décor and gifts at the Shop! So show that card and enjoy.
3 New Art Exhibitions
Including sculptural forms (Fervor: Ana María Hernando), augmented reality (Seeing the Invisible) and a 15-foot-tall Aztec deity (Alebrije: Xólotl), which you can experience in our new gallery spaces, out on the grounds or in the Freyer - Newman Center.
Okay, technically it's fall, but if you think the beautiful blooms fade with your suntan, you must visit the Gardens in September and October! Ornamental grasses turn all kinds of rusty, sunset hues; all kinds of asters are bursting from the gardens; and it feels like nature is giving us a glorious send-off before it goes dormant for the winter. Plus, that sizzling summer sun has backed off a bit, and the light is golden and perfect for photo ops. Your membership gives you unlimited general admission, so you can visit all fall long.
1 Membership gets you all of this! And this is just for fall--we haven't even talked about summer, spring and winter. Continuing education classes change seasonally, as do special events, art exhibitions, and, of course, all of the incredible horticultural displays onsite.
I hope to see you at the Gardens soon.
