Lunchtime in the Garden


The Staff Council Activities Committee invites the Smith community to take a stroll through the lavish Capen House Garden on Monday, June 11, from noon to 1 p.m. Bring lunch and enjoy the celebrated gardens and a talk by Michael Marcotrigiano, director of the Botanic Garden (event will be cancelled in case of rain).

Capen Garden, located on the northeast edge of campus, features a rustic rose arbor, perennial beds, a knot garden, and a fountain. A formal gazebo, honoring Jill Ker Conway, hosts a spectacular display of tulips and summer annuals. The garden is an important campus resource for teaching horticulture.

Four years ago, the Staff Council Activities Committee coordinated a successful summer series of garden tours. The committee decided to revisit the idea this year with a walk and talk in Capen Garden. If the event goes well, say committee members, there will be more.
