Join Unity Church Hill Nursery and Adkins Arboretum in exploring Winterthur. Enjoy 1,000 acres of rolling hills, streams, meadows, and forests.The gardens are dynamic and ever-changing, so the tour will be based on what’s happening that day. A guided, unscripted tour led by four cohort(iculturalist)s will be driven by what’s happening in the garden, your questions, and a sense of wonder. A private lunch will provide an opportunity for further discussions and questions.
