Explore the art of overwintering—preparing a garden for colder seasons—by learning practices like seed-saving, tucking plants in with mulch and more. Contribute to a collective goodnight story with a crop cover for Family Art Project’s garden bed. Then, create your own plein-air watercolor paintings to honor the natural stages of dormancy and hibernation that take place in nature.
See our new guidelines and join us on the Conifer Slope!
Forest Bathing: Changing Seasons (Onsite)
Saturday, November 14, 10AM–12PM

Contemplate the changes in the fall landscape and your own body as certified forest therapists Gerti Schoen, Nancy Kopans and Cindy Olsen guide you on a reflective walk through Wave Hill’s gardens and trails.
