Garden Party 2019 was a wonderful evening!  We celebrated the beauty of The Gardens and the fundraising goal for interns and student workers was met and then some. Thanks to all who participated.


"Light Up The Gardens"

The 15th annual Garden Party, "Light Up the Gardens" showcases new lighting throughout The Gardens funded by a grant and donations. The party plans include light hor d'oeuvre stations, cocktails, live music, a silent auction and a few surprises. Garden tour leaders will be available for questions and brief tours. 

This fun event celebrates the beauty of the Gardens; but more importantly, raises funds for interns and student workers who learn and train at the Gardens. They are involved in seasonal planting, maintenance, pruning, watering, weeding, fountain cleaning, special events and working with our active volunteer group - Purple Thumbs.
