A Gardener’s Tour of the Formal Gardens

Adult Programs
2021 Garden's Tour

Perched above Lake Champlain with expansive views of the Adirondacks, the Flower Gardens at our Inn reflect the vision of their creator, Lila Webb, with contemporary inspiration from Birgit Deeds, Shelburne Farm’s long-time head gardener. Join Birgit and her assistant, local Horticulturist Paul Wieczoreck, on a an informal stroll and tour through the gardens focusing on what is blooming month-to-month. Dig into the cultivation, history, and some user-friendly botany of some of the many plants you encounter. There will be ample time to ask questions and share your own gardening experiences as we all learn more about what these beautiful gardens have to offer. 

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

Please note: In case of inclement weather, this tour may be rescheduled or canceled.  A switch to the rain date will be determined by 10:00AM the day of the event and will be communicated via email.
