Seasonal Family Sensory Walks - Fall

WHEN: Sunday, September 08, 2013 at 1:00PM - 2:00PM
WHERE: Blithewold Grounds

Seasonal Family Sensory Walks

Feel free to come early and enjoy a picnic lunch on the grounds!
A garden is a feast for the senses! Blithewold invites the whole family to experience the beauty and life of the garden—not only with their eyes, but with their ears, fingers, toes, and nose! Join us in celebrating the wonderful world of plants — their fragrances, sounds, colors, textures, tastes, and movement.

In our Sensory Walk around the grounds, horticulturists Gail Reed and Tricia Bailey will help us uncover all of these horticultural sensory delights. Participants will be able use all five of their senses as they touch and smell and explore the many plants, trees, and shrubs that we will encounter on our walk.

The tour will begin at the Rose Garden, please wear comfortable walking shoes. We will explore our sense of taste by enjoying some fresh-from-the garden refreshments at the end of our walk.
