Snug Harbor Garden Tours: Perennial Garden and Carl Grillo Glass House

***Due to extreme heat forecast for July 20, this event has been cancelled.***

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.

Explore the beauty of the ever-changing Perennial Garden at the height of its season on the Perennial Garden and Carl Grillo Glass House Tour!  Perennials vary in lifespan from three to fifty years, creating a dynamic environment which changes with each year’s growing cycle.  Then, visit the Carl Grillo Glass House, a space that is typically closed to the public.  Built on the site of the original Sailors’ Snug Harbor greenhouse, the 2,800-square-foot enclosure is used for propagation and exhibition of rare and beautiful plants.

Excited to learn more?  Stick around for the Tiny Gardens Workshop from 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM!
