‘Essence of the Garden’ nature walk series

Quarryhill Botanical Garden

Saturday March 16th 2019 - 10:00am to

Quarryhill Botanical Garden is offering “Essence of the Garden,” a series of nature walks tied to the flowering cycles of its wild Asian flora. The sequence of walks has been carefully scheduled so participants can experience rare wild plants in full bloom. Each walk will highlight the energy of the season, from the ancient grace of the magnolias in early spring, to the exuberant and fragrant roses and colorful lilies that bloom as spring and summer unfold. The walks will be led by Quarryhill Docent Kathleen Aspenns, who is also a certified Flower Essence Practitioner. She will share the history, lore, botanical knowledge, and the healing gifts of the flowers during your stroll in the garden.

The series begins Saturday, March 16, 10 a.m.-noon, and continues April 27, June 8 and July 13. Register in advance at The fee for each walk is $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
