Powell Gardens – Plant Preview Party and Auction

Powell Gardens recently hosted a Plant Preview Party and Auction to kick off its upcoming season. The festive weekend also featured the Plant Sale, a Fungi & Fermentation event, and the opening of the summer exhibition, Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks.

The altar of the Marjorie Powell Allen Chapel overlooks a 12-acre lake and “Marjorie’s Oak Tree,” a favorite shady spot for the Chapel’s namesake.

 

Community partners spoke to guests about silent auction items.

 

 

 

 

Deer sculptures made from LEGO bricks were installed in the reconstructed prairie.
