Public tours with trained volunteer guides are offered until September 7, 2015 at no additional cost. Tours begin inside the admissions gate and last approximately one hour. Visitors are welcome to join in or drop out at any time and no reservations are required to join.
During our short period of closure we’d like the opportunity to bring the serenity of the Garden to your door with our Speaker’s Bureau, made up of our most knowledgeable Garden Guides. Venues must have audio and video equipment of their own and wifi access. We require at least two weeks’ notice to book a Speaker’s Bureau presentation for a group.
