Join us for a tour of the Mullestein Winter Garden and make an evergreen wreath to take home in this special holiday program.  Students in our Learning by Leading program will introduce you to the Winter Garden, which features a wide variety of evergreens and plants with winter beauty, and guide you through making your own wreath using cut greens and other decorations.  Learn about the cultural lore surrounding evergreen plants and the historical significance of wreaths, and savor some festive holiday treats.  Refreshments and all materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own decorative embellishments to make your wreath uniquely yours!

Two sessions will be offered:

Morning: Saturday, December 2, 2023 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Afternoon: Saturday, December 2, 2023 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
