Grab your friends and family and hop aboard our exclusive "Washed Ashore" Adventure Tour! This non-stop shuttle tour is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced in the Garden. To start, you’ll meet either our defender of the Garden, Sage, or our spirited and mischievous Blossom. Both characters take turns hosting the tour, and it’s a unique experience with both! Sage is a lover of puns, quick with a “dad joke” and knows the Garden’s history unlike anyone else – perhaps because he’s been on this land for decades! Blossom, well, she’s a bit flighty. Her best friends are the flowers and pollinators in the Garden, but thanks to her gossiping ways, she knows a LOT about the Garden as well. Either character is with you throughout the tour, providing humor and fun along the way. Trash is making a splash in the Garden this spring. Come see beautiful sculptures made of “trashy” finds, explore our “trashy” past, and learn how we can all be a little less “trashy” with the Garden’s latest exhibit, "Washed Ashore – Art to Save the Sea". Sixteen giant creatures made from beach debris have washed ashore and landed at the Garden through September. "Washed Ashore – Art to Save the Sea" is a non-profit organization committed to combating plastic pollution through art and education. These 16 sculptures, which consist primarily of sea creatures, were built by the organization and its volunteers to inspire and spark positive changes in consumer habits. The Garden, having been built atop a sanitary landfill, has been proof throughout the past 60-plus years that beautiful things can come from trashy pasts. With this exhibit, we further explore the concept, as well as the education behind what we can ALL do to limit waste, particularly our single-plastic use.
Your ticket includes General Admission access to the Garden. The whole experience will be about 45 minutes, including an exclusive photo opportunity with either Sage or Blossom at one of the Washed Ashore sculptures. Lastly, you’ll get to take home a reusable SCBG water bottle to help reduce your carbon footprint!
