Celebration of the Seasons: An Unexpected Performance


“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.”

— Charles Dickens


With the support of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and in line with the Gardens' mission of connecting people with plants, this year's series is designed to take you along with us through nature’s seasons as we observe and appreciate the aesthetic and edible bounties that nature is able to provide for us within a year’s time.

Starting with spring and moving through winter, topics will include the allure and application of plant foliage varieties to spice up your landscape, using your garden’s bounty to fill your pantry with culinary delights sure to impress everyone at your table, and successfully extending your growing season with tips from one of gardening’s beloved experts.
