Dear Mead Botanical Garden Friends and Volunteers,

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, a storm of unprecedented size, it is our sincere hope that you and all your loved ones made it through with little or no damage.  

The Garden wasn't so fortunate.  It remains temporarily closed due to unsafe conditions, especially numerous high level hanging branches that could come loose and fall to the ground at any time. The City and Mead Botanical Garden Inc. staff are working toward reopening sections of the Garden as quickly as areas become safe again for visitors, volunteers and scheduled events.  

Some areas will likely be inaccessible for quite some time as the magnitude of damage is significant and varied greatly across the 47-acres. Trees are downed or damaged across the entire Garden. Water levels around Alice's Pond and Howell Creek are quite high.  Thankfully, the restored greenhouse and Legacy Garden was spared while tall pines crashed down all around just yards away. 

While recovery and replanting will take some time, we are deeply grateful that more damage was not incurred. 

Special volunteer work days are being planned... details will be posted as they are finalized.  In the meantime, reach out to our friends at Leu Garden.  They, too, were hit especially hard. 

The Garden's fall fundraiser, Woodstock Winter Park ~ A Groovy Garden Affair, will be held.  We are hopeful that we can come together for a great night of fun and music in the Garden on October 7!  If you haven't purchased your table or tickets, there's still time, but hurry! 

MBG Inc. and the City will keep you informed about our reopening and special volunteer clean-up events through our Facebook page and website, www.meadgarden.org.



Grab your bell bottoms, love beads and come as you were!

Despite Hurricane Irma's best efforts to interfere, we've got a great evening planned for you with Woodstock Winter Park, Saturday evening, October 7.  It's a groovy garden affair (dinner & concert) under the stars at Mead Botanical Garden.  

Reserve your corporate table or individual tickets today! (click here)
