There will be no horticultural therapy programming this year due to the high-risk population served and a fundamental inability to deliver with socially distanced practices.
Those who would like to use a guest pass or are eligible for one of the Gardens’ complimentary visiting days, like Boothbay Resident Days, please call CMBG to reserve your complimentary ticket(s).
Connecting people to plants and nature is at the heart of Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens’ mission—a connection that’s become more important than ever. Until it is safe once again to gather in larger numbers, the Gardens will continue to offer selections from CMBG at Home, an online initiative helping garden lovers grow their knowledge safely. This year, large popular events, such as the annual Symposium, will be offered online.
