Exploring East and West

Monday, August 5
9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.


East meets West as we explore both the Malott Japanese Garden and Thomas English Walled Garden. Learn how culture shaped both gardens. Discover ideas to lead students through mindfulness activities, plant comparisons, cultural uses, and more. Take home a plant related to one or both gardens. Attend this or other garden-themed workshops to learn what you can do with your class when you are on a free self-guided field trip at the Garden.
