Two skilled guides, Connie Milner, a regular volunteer High Line guide, and Stephanie Ciparis, Head Gardener at Madison Square Park take you on a historical and horticultural tour of New York's hottest attraction.
Saturday, June 29th 9am up on the High Line at West 14th Street. The elevator is closer to 10th Avenue (in between the stairs to the High Line and the Citibike docking station). We will meet UPSTAIRS on the High Line to the right of the elevator and depart at 9AM SHARP, rain or shine. The tour will conclude at West 30th Street and 10th Avenue (which has an elevator, as well). The tour will take approximately two hours and will cover a distance of less than one mile, traveling at a leisurely pace. Our two guides, Stephanie and Connie will describe the plants, High Line history, design, artwork and architecture for a fun and informative morning in this meadow in sky, all for $15 (cash only). (Please note there is only one restroom on the High Line at 16th Street.) So bring your sunscreen and/or umbrella and join us for a great tour.

About the Indoor Gardening Society...
IGS is a great way to introduce adults and children to the importance of green plants. The more you know about botany and growing things, the more you understand their impact on every aspect of your life and their importance to human survival. They can beautify your home and freshen the air in it. They are strongly linked to many aspects of human history and development. They will heighten your appreciation of the outdoors and bring it inside for you to enjoy year-round. At each of our monthly meetings members will enjoy:
-a lecture about a horticulturally-related topic
-a plant sale making rare and unusual plants available at reasonable prices
-an exhibition of spectacular specimens often unknown to people outside the plant hobbyist world and often unseen at botanical gardens.
-access to supplies and information that can turn anyone from a novice to a successful grower
After your free initial meeting, please consider joining IGS, see details at www.indoorgarden.org
