Third annual Cummer Amelia Garden Walk 2017 is coming

This March, the Cummer Museum is proud to celebrate its annual Garden Month through a variety of garden-related activities, including tours, lectures, concerts, and art workshops for visitors of all ages.  Garden Month is a celebration of the historic gardens built by Museum founders Arthur and Ninah Cummer.  Recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, the gardens are examples of a range of early 20th-century garden design.

Join Cummer Amelia for the 3rd Annual Garden Walk at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Residential Community.  This event supports school tours for Nassau County students, which both enrich their curriculum and broaden their worldview.  The Garden Walk begins with a peek at selected Amelia Island Plantation private gardens, plus a talk and tour at the Omni Resort's hydroponic greenhouse and bee hives.  There will be a presentation by renowned Omni Chef Daven Wardynski held at the Omni Aquaponic Greenhouse, followed by a walking tour of four beautiful home gardens, each with their own unique charm.  Art demonstrations, live music, food, and drink will be provided along the tour route.  Trolley transportation is also available.

12:30 p.m. - Check-in at the Omni Aquaponic Greenhouse, located on Sea Marsh Road on Amelia Island, at the north end of Oak Marsh Golf Driving Range, inside Omni Amelia Island Plantation Residential Community.  Parking and greenhouse space are limited, and all registrants must check in by 12:30 p.m.
