Do It! Summer Fun

All the botanical gardens large and small are heading into summer's event season, and this year's programming is some of the best we've seen! Two highlights:

Now through January 2010
Phipps Botanical Gardens: German-born artist Hans Godo Fräbel, a founding father of modern glass sculpture, incorporates more than 400 of his sculptures into the gardens and rooms at Phipps for Life in the Gardens: Fräbel Glass at the Phipps. "Phipps' visitors loved our Chihuly show. I think when they see this exhibit, visitors will be amazed with the difference between the two artists and they'll be astonished with how Fräbel's other worldly glass sculptures transform Phipps' garden," says Richard V. Piacentini the Executive Director.

June 27–September 13
New York Botanical Garden: The Edible Garden is a summer-long celebration of growing great food. Through delectable exhibitions and mouth-watering programs, be inspired to grow, prepare, and eat garden-fresh produce, and understand how plants provide the food and drink essential to maintaining life and enhancing wellness.
