Backstage: Secrets of the Garden Wall

Saturday, September 28, 2019, 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.

The Garden Wall and Berm zips by in a flash for drivers on the Edens Expressway, yet there is so much more to appreciate. Tour this highly visible, yet virtually inaccessible, jewel in the crown of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Join us and discover the secret gardens along the mile-long Garden Wall.
