The Gardens of Blithewold

Length: 1 hour program

Blithewold, located in Bristol, RI, is 33 acres of lawns, gardens, specimen trees, and historic stone structures. Walking the grounds, you may be drawn to the cool shade of the Bosquet (“enclosed woodland”), enjoy the solitude of the Water Garden, absorb the history of the Enclosed Garden, or be dazzled by the abundance of the Display Gardens. Photographs of the transition of the garden through time, and throughout the season, are used to illustrate this remarkable American garden treasure.

We've done programs for Historical Societies, colleges and universities, libraries, assisted living residences, garden clubs and annual meetings for several types of community organizations.
