Join us on December 20th to spend an evening in the Bartram’s Orchard, home to 136 diverse tree species, celebrating the coming of the longest night and the health of the trees.  Gather around warming fires, toast to the trees, drink from the wassail bowl, and join us in song as we rejoice in the land and thank the trees for their bounties.

Festivities begin at 6:30 PM.  Stay as long as you like.  Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages provided.  Free.

Location: Bartram’s Garden Orchard. Parking in main parking loop. Follow the glowing orbs to the event.

Special Note: Shortly before 7:30pm, many of us will be making our way into the warmth of the Barn for a wintertime concert by Robinson & Rohe!
