There’s the house party, the loft party, the frat party, and the dreaded office party. We’re going with the Garden Party – and to do it, we’re moving our regular Friday night action outside. At the brand new Summer Garden Parties, awaken five senses on our botanical tours, geek out with us in citizen science projects, and by all means, get your hands dirty in homesteading activities (pickling, potting, birdhouse building). Have a picnic under the stars, or enjoy bars and food trucks – and get ready to dance because the DJs will be outside too. It’s Friday night – time to take a deep breath and get outdoorsy at NHM!
