For the health and safety of our patrons and speakers, masks may be required for indoor in-person Houston Seminar events, and we strongly prefer registrants to be fully vaccinated. Since events are held at a variety of venues with their own policies and protocols, there may be other requirements for some courses. We make every effort to inform guests in a timely manner if there are additional health and safety guidelines they will be asked to follow. Our trips and study tours, particularly those that include shared transportation or plane flights, may also require guidelines beyond those for in-person courses, which will be determined in conjunction with venues, vendors, and local guidelines. We will make every effort to announce these guidelines as far in advance as possible. Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to navigate the world of COVID-19 while bringing enriching experiences to our audiences.
Gardens and Bees
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 9:30A.M.-5:30P.M.
TRANSPORTATION FROM HOUSTON AND BACK WILL BE BY LUXURY BUS; LOCATION OF BUS DEPARTURE WILL BE GIVEN TO SUBSCRIBERS. IN THE EVENT OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION RESTRICTIONS DUE TO COVID-19, DRIVING DIRECTIONS TO THE JOHN FAIREY GARDENS AND THE BEEWEAVER APIARY WILL BE PROVIDED. (RAIN DATE, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13.)
Enjoy a day out of the city and experience the delights of the John Fairey Garden, previously known as Peckerwood Garden, in Hempstead, and the BeeWeaver Honey Farm in Navasota, an hour away from Houston. Our day begins with a docent-led tour through the exceptional collection of over three thousand native and exotic plants of the John Fairey Garden, followed by a specially catered lunch on the garden’s newly designed patio, surrounded by a custom mosaic mural by Dixie Friend Gay, renowned local artist. We will then join longtime beekeepers for a hive tour and honey tasting at the BeeWeaver farm, producing high-quality honey since 1888, through five generations of the Weaver family. The store will be open for purchasing honey and a selection of curated merchandise.
