what's happening now
Gardeners Connect is hitting the road again for a day trip to Missouri Botanical Garden in St Louis this September.
Saturday, September 25, 2021
Members Only Day Trip
6 a.m. departure approximate 11 p.m. return
The gardens are hosting a special exhibition Origami in the Garden, which features 18 large-scale structures using a technique of lost-wax casting to create origami-like structures in metal and in a scale not possible with paper.
The installations feature flying birds, butterflies, floating boats and a tower that creates the illusion of 1,000 stainless steel origami cranes hovering above the water.
Of course, you will be able to explore the garden’s 79 acres, including rose, Japanese, Chinese and Ottoman gardens to just name a few of the 26-plus different named gardens including the world renown Climatron . The waterlily collection should be in peak bloom during our visit.
Departure is Saturday, September 25...
LilyPalooza is a perennial favorite program and fundraiser for Gardeners Connect. We plan on our largest offering of bulbs this year. Hard to believe that 2021 will be our 12th year and there are so many new things to offer and some of the best from previous years will be offered again for those that didn’t snag them the first time.
All bulbs will be available September 1, 2021 for online purchase at shop.gardenersconnect.org. Orders will be available for pick up on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the home of Gardeners Connect Board member, Ward Wheeler who has managed pick ups for the past few years. His home is centrally located at 1000 West 88th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64114 just east of Ward Parkway.
For those people not able to pick up their orders during this time please email Brian Chadwick-Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for an alternate pickup time in Raytown, Missouri.
Additionally we will be offering a shipping option available for purchase online with your order.
