We are excited to return for our first in-person luncheon event since March 13, 2020, just prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. For our "Back to School" September 14  membership lunch meeting we will learn about the $250 million project  Longwood Reimagined: A New Garden Experience from Marnie Conley, Chief Marketing and Development Officer for Longwood Gardens and also from Tony Ingram, Sr. Project Manager for Bancroft Construction Company the project's construction manager.

For more than 115 years, Longwood Gardens has harmoniously blended art and science to create a horticulture experience of unparalleled splendor. With the realization of Longwood Reimagined: A New Garden Experience—a sweeping reimagination of 17 acres of the Conservatory and grounds, opening in fall 2024—they are honored to enhance, steward, and preserve one of the world’s most important, most beautiful collections of gardens and glasshouses.
