Open Day at Garland Farm
September 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, September 26, 2019
Garland Farm, the last home and gardens of noted landscape architect Beatrix Farrand, is open to the public on Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. through Sept. 26. The historic property showcases Farrand’s restored gardens, horticultural library and 1955 farmhouse addition, which incorporates many architectural elements salvaged from her Reef Point estate in Bar Harbor.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy a self-guided tour of the grounds or join a docent for a guided tour of the house. A herbarium exhibit in the restored barn celebrates the gardens of five people who mentored Beatrix Farrand and displays illustrations of pressed plants from Reef Point.
