2011 Events Highlights

This year BBG’s special membership group attended more events than ever before! Here’s a quick look at a few great times we enjoyed:

Insider’s Look at Graceful Perseverance | March 30

Bonsai curator Julian Velasco led tours of BBG’s enchanting collection after guests enjoyed an early-spring reception in the Steinhardt Conservatory.

Sakura Matsuri Preview Party | April 27

Guests gathered on Cherry Esplanade for sake and Japanese snacks before curator Brian Funk gave tours of the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden in full bloom.

Cocktails in the Wilderness | May 17

The Native Flora Garden turned 100 years young this year! We took our wine to the woods in celebration and heard about this magnificent garden’s past, present, and future from curator Uli Lorimer and BBG president Scot Medbury.

Annual Garden Trip | June 16

This year we traveled to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to visit two exquisite private gardens: Barbara and Robert Tiffany’s home Mill Fleurs, and Cedaridge Farm, the home of Derek and Carolyn Fell.

And we’re not done yet! Please stay tuned for updates on the great events just ahead.

April Greene is the Major Gifts and Special Events associate.
