Hershey Gardens: A Tour of History & Horticulture

Saturday, June 13 at 10 a.m. at Hershey Gardens

 Join us for this 45-minute tour of Hershey Gardens, given by Horticulture Specialist Barbara Whitcraft, as she shares Hershey Elegance_Hershey GardensGardens’ rich history and horticultural excellence. Hershey Gardens was created in 1937, when Mr. Hershey was approached to sponsor a national rosarium in Washington, D.C. Instead, he decided to create a garden in Hershey where he and the community could enjoy it. The original 3 1/2 acre rose garden opened to the public in 1937. By 1942, Hershey Gardens expanded to a dazzling 23-acre botanical garden. Hershey Gardens is now filled with beautiful theme gardens, colorful seasonal displays, unique trees, a magnificent outdoor Butterfly House and 5,000 breathtaking rose bushes. Advanced reservations are required for this event and there will be a fee for this tour. MAKE A RESERVATION & PAY HERE.
