On Sunday, June 23 from 2 to 3:30, poet and gardener, Hilda Weiss will lead an intimate tour corresponding with the garden’s summer life cycle. These collective explorations spotlight the benefits of our native plants, the garden’s connection to the Shotgun House and the use of poetry to explore our own connection to place.

During the first half of the event, Hilda will take visitors on a tour of the garden focusing on the selection and care of native plants and how they contribute to the beauty and health of our neighborhoods. After a break for tea and light refreshments, visitors will reconvene inside the Shotgun House for a group reflection on land, poetry, and an exploration our own use of language to connect to place.
