Virtual Members’ Event

Cantigny Gardens Southern Style with Mrs. Wellin Tentioned

A virtual event via Zoom
Tuesday, October 13

While often misguided, Mrs. Wellin Tentioned is a golden-ager southern belle who travels the garden circuit near and far. Today’s stop will be at the newly renovated Cantigny Gardens in Wheaton, IL. Join her as she poses questions to Cantigny Horticulture’s Craig Kruckenberg in her quirky and querulous fashion. The two will tour the Fountain, Octagon, Rock/Gravel/Crevice Gardens, Allee and Logarium, plus a quick venture into the Idea Garden, which is still under construction. She’ll ask CK a plethora of questions about Cantigny and the gardens and you can ask her questions of your own following the presentation.

Be ready for a fun and entertaining program by our horticulture staff. You’ll also see and learn about the new features in the gardens, completed in 2020.

Mrs. Wellin Tentioned is portrayed by Liz Omura, Cantigny’s Idea Garden Curator, and Horticulture Education & Volunteer Coordinator.

We’ll send a Zoom meeting link to registered members at 9 am on October 13, two hours before the presentation begins.
