Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and Two Private Gardens
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 2017 – 9:45 AM
Please join us for a docent-guided tour of the Phipps Conservatory. In addition, we will view Super.Natural, a glass art show by Seattle master glass artist, Jason Gamrath, filling the Conservatory with botanical glass pieces on a massive scale. Our second tour of the Phipps will be a Sustainable Landscapes Tour focusing on green design, renewable energy, rainwater harvesting, and green roofs. The Phipps research and education facility is designed to be one of the greenest buildings on Earth!
LUNCH – 12:30-1:30pm – Boxed Lunches on the Terrace (included in cost).
In the afternoon, we will drive to two private garden tours in nearby Pittsburgh hosted by fellow GCA members of the Garden Club of Allegheny County. One garden has been documented by the Smithsonian, the other is being prepared for submission. Start return to Cleveland by 4:00 pm.
