Then come early to take in the TRAVEL FAIR in the TBG lobby beginning at 5:30 p.m. Gather up information, and meet some of the amazing tour operators and well-known horticultural hosts that can whisk you away to the greatest gardens in the world. Visit all the operators and get your TBG passport stamped for a chance to win a gift package of Traveler’s Essentials from Garden Shop.
And don’t miss TALKING BOOKS from 6:45 to 7 p.m., for an enlightening tour through the world of garden travel resources available in the Weston Family Library. While you’re there, take the time to peek at the newly hung Student Art Show.
