Multi-generations enjoy Grandparents’ Day in the Linnaeus Teaching Garden.

Note: Grandparents’ Day is canceled for 2018 but will be scheduled again next year.

The Linnaeus Teaching Garden Seniors Committee sponsors Grandparents’ Day annually in the fall. Grandparents’ Day is a wonderful time for seniors to spend a special day with their grandchildren, pass along their knowledge of gardening, and share their love of the outdoors.

Each year the Seniors Committee tries to have something special for all.

In 2017, we are sponsoring our annual celebration on Sunday, October 15th between the hours of 10am to 3pm.

This year’s event will feature a fairy garden to explore, harpists from the Midwest Harp Academy, face painting by Matt Schone & Co., homemade cookies, and garden crafts for purchase. All visitors can receive one family photograph, displayed in a beautifully designed folder as a memento of the occasion.  In addition, the first 100 grandmothers to arrive will receive a “tussie mussie,” a nosegay of fresh herbs and assorted flowers.
