Come get into the nitty-gritty of a cleaner and greener environment. Celebrate Earth Day with the Voelker Orth and join in some urban gardening with special consideration to sustainable/natural methods of gardening to protect the planet and wildlife.
It is an afternoon of art, hands-on workshops and a spring garden tour with plant and backyard wild-life care tips. At 1:00 & 3:00 pm participate in a workshop on starting flowers, herbs and vegetables from seed. Learn about recycling, composting and earth-friendly resources in our community.
Maifest in the Garden
Saturday, May 16th, 5:30 – 8:30pm
Join the May merriment! In the spirit of springtime celebrations in the wine country along the Rhine River, the Voelker Orth Museum is hosting its annual Maifest in the Garden. Maifest celebrates the arrival of spring and the old traditions brought by German-American immigrant families like the Voelkers to their new homes in America.
Come with an appetite and your dancing shoes! It is a welcoming evening with wonderful music performed by Norman Curtis, food and drink, art and Gemuetlichkeit (friendship), set in a beautiful garden. We fire up the grill and prepare a home-cooked dinner, served with a traditional maibowle punch. Relax and enjoy!
Admission for the evening is $30 and $25 for members, all inclusive. In the event of rain, the program moves indoors. The Museum will be open for the evening.
