The garden landscape embodies the promise of rebirth—and loss—perhaps a uniquely appropriate setting for commemorating 9/11.  On this special weekend, “Wind Elegy”, as well as a special Family Art Project, offer families the opportunity to focus their thoughts and feelings on the anniversary.  With admission to the grounds waived all day Sunday, families will feel especially welcome.

Then at the end of this week, the fall exhibition opens. Hive Culture, Honey Weekend in early October and Hive Culture Weekend in early November are all integral to this fall’s focus on bees, honey and beekeeping.
