Garden Masters: The Camp Rosemary Experience

Camp Rosemary

Sun, Jul 16, 2023
2:00 PM- 4:00 PM

Spend an extraordinary Sunday afternoon in July at Camp Rosemary, one of America’s most spectacular private gardens. This expansive Lake Forest estate, designed in part by Rose Standish Nicols in the 1920s and later enhanced by other prominent landscape architects and designers, includes an array of captivating English-style garden rooms, a lush, wooded ravine garden, and an exquisite pool house.

Head gardener Marya Padour will lead guests through the intensely and imaginatively cultivated property and discuss the expert horticultural techniques used to make this garden shine. Camp Rosemary was featured in Gardens of the North Shore of Chicago, by author Ben Lenhardt.

In addition to visual riches, guests will be lavished with attention, from valet parking and music to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while exploring the garden.
