Members-Only: Summer Soulstice Picnic & Container Display Garden Demonstration

Thursday, June 23, 2022 at 6:00 pm

Members-Only Programs are exclusive to active members of the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries. As a benefit of your membership donation, supporters are invited to get a view of our cemeteries that no ordinary visitor will ever experience with special programs, lectures, and tours.

The week of June 23rd officially marks the start of summer and the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries is putting the soul in solstice by inviting members to a special Members-Only Summer Soulstice Picnic. Enjoy a picnic dinner (by Tasty Table), a donation bar with beer and wine (though you are welcome to BYOB), and an informative and entertaining demonstration on creating an annual container display garden! Members will see the who, what, when, where and how of creating a garden within a container that will bring color, texture and most of all, happiness to all who see it. Using annuals, Senior Horticulturist Gregg Tepper will demonstrate the process, share tips for success, answer members’ questions and offer guidance on how to create an effective seasonal display. Once the container is completed, a random drawing will take place to decide which lucky member gets to take the wonderful container home with them!

Fees for the program will cover costs for a picnic dinner and access to the beer and wine bar.

The program will take place on Thursday, June 23rd (Rain Date: Tuesday, June 28th) at 6:00 pm, in the beautiful Medallion Garden at Laurel Hill Cemetery: 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132.
