Evenings in the Garden at the Rochester Hills Museum

The Rochester Hills Museum and the Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association invite all ages to attend Evenings in the Garden this summer and enjoy the Museum’s Children’s Garden and to learn about gardening techniques.

On Wednesday, July 11, from 7:00 to  9:00 p.m., enjoy the Grand Gala Grand opening of the new Sundial Garden with a short program and light refreshments. The Sun Dial Garden uses people to cast a shadow to tell what time it is. The garden is surrounding by plants that reflect time such as moonflower, daylily, morning glory, and sun drops.

On Wednesday, August 15, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., enjoy a program titled, “Using Native Plants in the Landscape.”  A brief program will be followed by refreshments with plenty of time to stroll through the Children’s Garden.  Both programs are suitable for all ages.

Admissions is free, but please register at 248.656.4663 or rhmuseum@rochesterhills.org
