SF Botanical Garden to break ground on second expansion

-A A +A

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden will kick off the ground breaking of their Phase Two Expansion at 11 a.m. Friday at their Museum Hill site at 715 Camino Lejo.
The construction team, led by John Mondragon of Mountain West Golfscapes, will work through the fall and winter to complete the hardscape of the expanded garden. Planting is scheduled in Spring 2016, with an anticipated opening of Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands Garden in August/September 2016.
Phase Two of the Botanical Garden at Museum Hill is titled Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands as it will be a place to explore ethnobotany – the shared history of humans and plants in northern New Mexico – through hands-on experiences and observation. It will serve as the epicenter of educational programming and will enable SFBG to serve the community in new ways.
This new learning space, designed by landscape architect W. Gary Smith, will allow for larger school and adult groups and a greater variety of programming, from science and cooking, to weaving and art. With three dedicated outdoor classrooms, two exploration places, and a learning pavilion with a seating capacity of 100, youth and adults will have spaces to explore, discover, and play in the natural environment. Tiered gardens for annual crops will allow visitors to participate in hands-on learning experiences, from planting to harvesting.
