Guided Garden Tours

Guided Garden ToursThe setting for Boerner Botanical Gardens is reminiscent of an English country manor with glacial fieldstone walls and historic, handcrafted limestone statuary.

Plants of the Bible

FBBG presents a tour of Plants of the Bible which include references to gardens and plant life in the Bible.

Many of the plants mentioned in the Bible are the same Genus or Family as the plants that can be seen at Boerner Botanical Gardens. They were used to enhance flavor in foods, to make cosmetics and perfumery to make people and places more attractive and pleasant, as payment for goods and services, and also for medicinal purposes.

“The story of creation begins in a garden, and Jesus’ last hours on earth were in a garden. His body was entombed in a garden and the women who went to the tomb to perform burial rites used plant material. The Book of Revelation ends with a reference to trees… bearing fruit.”

Explore these special plants with us anytime from July 1- Sept. 30.

This tour is $9.50 per person with a minimum group of 10.
