“Oak Spring: The Heart of the Mellon Landscape” at Oak Springs Farm
September 26 @ 1:45 pm - 5:30 pm| $125
Visit the grounds and gardens of historic Oak Spring Farm. Once home to the Mellon family, the site now serves as the location of the Oak Spring Garden Foundation, a world class non-profit dedicated to inspiring and facilitating scholarship and public dialogue on the history and future of plants, including the culture of gardens and landscapes and the importance of plants for human well-being.
Guests will have an opportunity to explore the famous gardens, as well as the greenhouse, gallery, and a portion of the Mellon home before enjoying a beer and wine reception in the courtyard surrounded by the Mellon stables. OSGF President Sir Peter Crane will offer remarks on the preservation of the local landscape and the legacy of the Mellon family.
Tickets are limited, and will be made available to Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area Association members first. Remaining tickets will be made available to the general public on Aug. 2.
