Celebrate Grandparents Day in The Linnaeus Teaching Garden, Sunday, September 14th
On Sunday, September 14th, from 10 am to 3 pm, the Linnaeus Teaching Garden in Woodward Park will celebrate their 3rd Annual Grandparents Day in the Linnaeus Garden.
Grandparents, bring your grandchildren to our special garden and share your knowledge of flowers and plants with them. Help them experience the fragrance of the various herbs when you rub a rosemary leaf between your fingers in the Herb Garden. Let them taste some lettuce in the Vegetable Garden as you show them where vegetables come from. Examine a cotton plant that produces the fabric we wear and that is also used in the manufacturing of currency. Gardening illustrates the stages of a life cycle. Come and help celebrate that cycle.
Kendall Leigh Hancock owner of Dreamachine Photography will be present to take complimentary souvenir photos of grandparents and their family members, and light refreshments will be served.
Fergie Bear from Ferguson Motors will make his second appearance at Grandparents Day. Members of the Tulsa Herb Society will make a small bouquet of herbs and flowers to form a nosegay for the first 100 grandmothers. Grandchildren accompying grandmothers will be given a beautifully designed bookmark.
For the very young at heart, there will be at least six decorated garden fairies scattered throughout the Herb Garden. (Shhh - please be quiet. We don't want to disturb them.) If you hear music emanating from the Outdoor Classroom, it might be from the band of our summer intern, Matthew Pallett.
The Grandparents Day holiday was proclaimed by President Carter in 1978 to be the first Sunday after Labor Day, and we're celebrating one week later this year. At the Linnaeus Gardens, Grandparents are always special!
