The Berkshire Botanical Garden, located at the junctions of routes 102 and 183 in Stockbridge has been instrumental in making a presence during these trying times as they recently invited guests during warm weather months to take walks around their grounds as patrons and members cooperated with mandatory C-D-C guidelines by practicing proper social distancing and wearing masks on the property to experience the flora and nature's beauty as an escape during these trying times.

December is amongst us and BBG is proud to continue their tradition of presenting their 30th annual Holiday Market Place. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, they will offer an alternative regarding their Gallery of Wreaths fund raiser. This event will be presented on-line as a collection of 100 unique one-of-a-kind designer wreaths are on display for public viewing and purchase. For more details, you can log on to The Berkshire Botanical Garden's web site by accessing this link.
