COVID-19 Announcement & Updates

Updated May 5th

As the situation with COVID19 continues to evolve, all on-site public programming at Bartram’s Garden is canceled until further notice. Our office will also be closed during this time, with staff working remotely. We are committed to providing enriching experiences remotely; please follow our social media channels for information on live-streams and online workshops.

Some good news: our Spring Plant Sale is live! You can order plants (and more) for curb-side pickup via our online store. Orders are open until May 10th, and contactless pick-ups can be scheduled for May 16th, 23rd, and 30th.

We will assess future programming on a rolling basis. If you would like to change or cancel an existing registration, please contact us to receive a full refund or to transfer your registration. You may also choose to donate your registration fee to the Garden as we continue stewarding this legendary landscape and fulfilling our financial commitments to local program partners, artists, and educators. We are grateful for your understanding and flexibility as we all work together to keep our community safe.

The historic house and garden are closed per state requirement, however the public park and recreational trail are open for walking, biking, jogging, and operating a wheelchair. Do note that per guidance from the city’s Department of Parks & Recreation, the gate to our main driveway will be periodically closed to prevent overcrowding in our visitor parking lot. Bartram’s Garden remains open for safe outdoor recreation while maintaining social distancing.

Stay safe, friends. We look forward to seeing you in the Garden someday soon!
