Each year, White Flower Farm hosts a series of lectures and special programs featuring staff members and well-known horticulturalists. You'll have fun learning, talking with White Flower Farm staff, touring our display gardens, shopping from a special selection of plants, and visiting scenic northwestern Connecticut. All talks are held rain or shine in our lecture hall, which is located up the hill behind our retail store on Route 63 in Morris, CT. Lecture attendees may drive up the hill to park closer to the event.

All lectures and workshops start at 10 a.m., unless otherwise noted, and take place in the Farm’s lecture room located in the upper parking lot.
