2014 Community First Garden Month at The Cummer




With the success of last year’s Garden Month, Community First Credit Union and The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens proudly present its annual celebration, Garden Month at The Cummer! The Cummer will be celebrating its historical gardens with events, programs, classes for adults and children, and Docent led tours throughout the month of March.

To kick off this year’s Garden Month on March 1, The Cummer, with a special thanks to Weaver First Saturday Free for All, will open its doors at 10 AM with free admission for everyone. Before the museum opens, there will be a Plant Sale on the front lawn starting at 9 a.m.  Rain barrels from The St. Johns Riverkeeper will also be sold from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. near the Art Connectins entrance.

During Community Day, there will be live music performed by Tammerlin, studio activities, demonstrations by local CoRK artist Crystal Floyd from 12 PM to 2 PM, and many other activities. The Ixia Chapter of the North Florida Native Plant Society will also be available to answer questions about the gardens as well as provide information on how to care for native plants in your home gardens. With free admission and activities for all, Community Day is an event not to be missed!
