These events begin at 11:30 am on Wednesdays from April to October (except August) in the Brown Horticulture Learning Center. Members free. Included with admission.
Walks last 45-60 minutes.

No reservations necessary. Dress for the weather and wear walking shoes.

The Winterthur Library’s collection of autochromes, the first industrially produced color photographs, provides horticulturists with a valuable glimpse into Mr. du Pont’s early design aesthetic. In particular, their portrayal between 1910 and 1921 of a lavish, formal flower garden at Winterthur is particularly priceless in that this garden no longer exists today. Join Assistant Curator of Education Erica Anderson for a sampling of historical images picturing this lost garden and then go on-site to investigate the garden’s original location and see remnants from its colorful past. Garden talk and walk.
Free for Members and included with admission, $5-$20
