The Wellesley College Botanic Gardens regularly hosts free programs for the community. This Sunday, the Gardens kicks off a new series of programs dubbed "Plantastic Days" which combine art, culture and science activities to show off just how fantastic plats can be.
A Halloween-themed "Spooky Plants" opens the series on Sunday, October 21. Drop in any time between 1:00 and 4:00 PM to "meet the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens' carnivorous plants, learn spooky takes of other strange plants and prep a spider plant to take home.
Later this season the Gardens will host "Thankful Plants" on Sunday, November 18 (find out what plants "we're especially thankful for and why -- bring your own list and see how it compares") and "Party Plants" on December 30. Both events are open from 1:00 to 4:00 PM as well.
See the Botanic Gardens' "Programs, Courses, and Travel Guide" for more information about upcoming events. The descriptions for future Plantastic Days can be found on page 4.
Each event will feature hands-on activities, crafts and scavenger hunts designed to engage participants of all ages - from toddlers to grandparents.
Plantastic Days are free and open to the public, parking on campus is also free. The Wellesley College Botanic Gardens are open to the "general plant loving public" year round from, 8 AM to 4 PM.
