Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.

This series of workshops takes a broad view of what it means to garden. Whether you consider yourself a backyard gardener, a forager, a farmer, or a steward of the land, the Garden Series will have something for you. From formal garden design to identifying and learning to use wild growing plants, we span a range of techniques and philosophies. Because of the range of subjects covered, these classes can be enjoyed by new and experienced gardeners alike.

Garden design is at least a craft, and in some cultures it rises to an art form. Using living plants as the medium, it must take into account the added elements of location, the laws and whims of nature, and the inevitable changes that come with the passage of time. Michelle Zimmer discovered that designing a garden to complement the newly installed Bonsai exhibit was a happy but surprisingly complex process. Join her for an informal presentation and discussion of the design process for these new perennial gardens. Bring your imagination and be prepared to walk and talk as we’ll look at the garden from many points of view.

Bring your canine friends for an afternoon of romping in the garden. In the winter, cross-country skiers and snowshoers also welcome, and in the warmer months, we encourage picnicking.
