Perched above Lake Champlain with expansive views of the Adirondacks, the gardens at our Inn reflect the vision of their creator, Lila Webb, with contemporary inspiration from Birgit Deeds, the Farm’s long-time head gardener. Join local Horticulturist Paul Wieczoreck and Birgit Deeds on a tour of the formal gardens at the Inn at Shelburne Farms. These informal strolls through the gardens will focus on what is blooming month-to-month while we dig more deeply into the cultivation, history and some user-friendly botany of some of the many plants we will encounter. There will be ample time for participants to ask questions and share their own gardening experiences as we learn more about what these beautiful gardens have to offer. Our timing will hopefully coincide with the peonies blooming!

This is a walking experience. Terraced garden spaces are accessible by a series of stairs. Geared for gardening enthusiasts, but all are welcome.

Unvaccinated participants must be masked; and everyone should maintain social distancing.
