Planting Pride: Rocking the Rainbow

Join us for an exclusive after-hours experience celebrating diversity and the LGBTQ+ community at Planting Fields!

Activities start at 5pm with self-guided tours of the Historic Tea House and Coe Hall, featuring the newly expanded exhibition Decisive Moments at Planting Fields: The Photography of Mattie Edwards Hewitt and Frances Benjamin Johnston.
