This walk will be presented in 2013:
A Greenhouse by Any Other Name
October 31, 11:30 am, Brown Horticulture Learning Center
“Greenhouse” is a term for a structure that can actually cover a wide variety of building types, from simple cold-frames to elaborate orangeries. A large amount of glass to allow sunlight to come through and keep the warmth in is the common denominator. Join estate historian Maggie Lidz for a walk to examine the variety of greenhouses and components of greenhouses at Winterthur.
Note: With Hurricane Sandy in the mix, please check the wwww.winterthur.org website for updates on whether Winterthur is open or not on October 31.
Join us for demonstrations, talks, and guided walks covering a wide range of gardening topics. These events begin at 11:30 am on Wednesdays from April through October (except August). Included with all admission tickets, members free.
Walks last 45-60 minutes. No reservations necessary. Please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes. Walks are generally not handicap accessible due to rough and steep garden paths.
