Next weekend, the arboretum is hopping with stuff to do!

If your New Year's Resolution includes growing some of your own vegetables, join Gwen Montgomery, Sr. Horticulture Specialist on Saturday, January 14th for the first in her series, "Getting Started in the Vegetable Garden." Call in or register on-line through the above link.

Then on Sunday, January 15th, join us for the Friends Members-Only New Year's Party. Sunday's presentation, given by Sue & Ollie Acheson, features stunning imagery from the Friends' recent trip to Gardens of Scotland.

The program is free, but please call to reserve your seat.
