  • Overview

    Help plant tulips at the Ten Broeck Mansion! Pre-registration is required - sign up today. Families are invited to join us to learn about the history of the Ten Broeck Mansion gardens.

    Did you know tulips have been planted in our gardens since the 1800s? And you have to plant them in the fall to have a beautiful display in the spring? We will learn about the origins of tulips, how they came to Europe and North America, and how tulips can be used to study our environment. After the program, take some time on your own for a self-guided tour of the Ten Broeck Mansion gardens and a free take-home art kit.

    Please wear shoes/sneakers and clothes for planting (getting a little muddy). We will have one trowel per household. All participants must practice social distancing and wear facemasks. For children ages 3 and up. An adult must be with each group of children during the program. Please note restroom facilities are not available. Please park in our parking lot (off Livingston Avenue). Rain date: Sunday October 4. Participants will be notified.
