AFTERNOON TEA AND GARDEN TOUR IN AN UPPER BEACH PRIVATE GARDEN

This garden is home to a passionate family of gardeners whose enthusiastic and inspiring love of plants has created a spectacular ravine-side oasis in the city. Showcased in several publications, this garden treats its fortunate visitors to painterly collections of foliage plants accented with bright perennials; a poolside collection of potted tropical plants and annuals; over 250 Japanese maples; majestic oak trees and the soothing sounds of several water features. The garden is wheelchair accessible.

In addition to the garden tour with the owner and Nancy Eaton Director of Horticulture Paul Zammit, guests will enjoy an afternoon tea and light discussion from Executive Director Harry Jongerden focused on the joys and health benefits of connecting with plants.

Gardens, as well as the activity of gardening, have been shown to have a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing. Plants and gardens feed more than the table, they feed the soul. Our bodies’ immune systems respond positively to the experience of nature’s beauty and reap the personal benefits of connecting with nature.
