Event is sold out. Please join us for another event.
Festoon your home for the holidays with color and texture freshly picked from Stoneleigh’s diverse plant collections. Participants will get crafty together as they design and create evergreen swags and sprays suitable for the season. Bundle up—we’ll be outdoors!
You will be provided detailed instruction on how to create your own garland as well design tips. The skills you will learn will be directly applied to the garland you will create for yourself or to give as a gift. Please bring clippers and gloves; some will be available to borrow. All other materials will be provided. If you would like, you are also welcome to bring small embellishments for a personal touch.
Capacity is limited for this small-group event. Health and safety of staff and participants is our highest priority. Please review “before you go” details before you attend the event, for your safety and the safety of others. Mask wearing and social distancing will be practiced.
For nearly 80 years, Stoneleigh was the home of the Haas family, which donated the property to Natural Lands in 2016 so that it would remain preserved forever.
The property includes stately trees, winding pathways, and lush gardens that were designed by a number of notable landscape architects over the past century—including the Olmsted Brothers, sons of the famed Frederick Law Olmsted.
