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.

Stroll Lynden’s grounds with herbalist Kyle Denton and discover the spring bounty of plants found in the wilds of southeast Wisconsin. Inside, we’ll prepare the healing herbs we forage, sample them, and discuss their taste and energetic qualities. Drawing on folklore, ancient wisdom, plant identification, and science, Denton will expand your understanding of our relationship to the natural world.

Bonsai is a living art that is appreciated by people in every culture. World Bonsai Day is for sharing this peaceful art and advancing international friendship and goodwill throughout the world. In honor of this year’s World Bonsai Day and the re-opening of the Bonsai Pavilion, Lynden will host a special temporary exhibit of bonsai that have been created from material that was collected from nature. The exhibit will open on Saturday, May 11, 2019, at the Bonsai Pavilion, with a demonstration by Milwaukee Bonsai Collection Curator Jack Douthitt at 1 pm. A reception will follow at 3 pm. The temporary exhibit will remain on view daily (except Thursday) through Saturday, May 18, 2019.

The Bonsai Pavilion, which houses the collection of the Milwaukee Bonsai Society, is open to the public Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and by appointment, from May to October. Admission is free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.
