Triple Garden Tour Ramble by White Fences Equestrian Center

October 26, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

The Conrad-Sunrise Chapter members will be taking part in the White Fences Garden Tour Ramble, which will be a tour of 3 dressage farms in the White Fences community of Loxahatchee. Following the tour we will have a pot luck lunch and plant auction.

White Fences is an immaculate equestrian community with many rare and fascinating tropical plants. The Chapter president will be a host of one of the farms in the dressage tour. Along with the company of our fellow Conrad-Sunrise Hibiscus Chapter members, we will be joined by the Palm Beach Palm and Cycad Society, Tropical Flowering Society, and the Begonia Society of the Palm Beaches.

If you would like to join us, be sure to bring something for the pot luck lunch. This event is open to the public. Come socialize and consider joining one of the 4 plant societies that will be there!
