Growing Lotus Flowers: Garden Workshop

September 14, 2019 @ 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Experience Snug Harbor’s gardens in a whole new way this summer!  Choose your own adventure: a tour, a workshop, or a tour + workshop combo.

At the Growing Lotus Flowers Workshop, you can start your own lotus seed! Considered a sacred seed, the lotus is a hardy aquatic plant that can thrive in a temperate climate.  Explore the unique qualities of the lotus seed, and learn how to grow your own.
