Garden Masters


The health and safety of all our members, garden hosts, guests, and other participants in our programs is a top priority for the Garden Conservancy. 

Following guidance from the CDC, we are canceling all Open Days and all other educational programs through June 30. As the situation changes, we will work with hosts to determine the best path forward, understanding that the implications may be different in different parts of the country.

In 2019, we introduced the Garden Masters Series—connoisseur-level educational and social opportunities at exclusive gardens not otherwise available through Open Days. We were thrilled with the reception; most of the programs sold out.

Garden Master Series programs require additional fees and advance registration through the links on each event page or by calling our toll-free order line, 1.888.842.2442, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.
