We are proud to partner with Innisfree Garden in Millbrook to bring you this Open Day; see their listing below. Special events on this date at Innisfree include:
● Family Time! Small Wonders: Storytelling and an Imaginative Garden Scavenger Hunt at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. at Innisfree Garden in Millbrook. Storytelling sessions for ages 5 and up. Let your imagination guide you through Innisfree Garden, a space of wonder and inspiration for visitors of all ages. Begin your exploration by listening to award-winning Storyteller Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi share original and traditional tales about the marvels of nature and its enchantments. Afterwards, stroll through the garden with clues from the stories and a map that will help you discover nature’s treasures within the garden.
