About the Event

Join us June 6th at 10:00 AM (ET) for an in-person Café for Care Partners at Morris Arboretum. After you register, we will send you information and instructions.

Please note: This event is limited to just 8 spaces, so early registration is strongly recommended.

Join us at Morris Arboretum for a calming, sensory experience, focusing on the arboretum’s rose garden. Enjoy a guided tour of the rose garden featuring arboretum history, horticultural knowledge, and more!

The Rose Garden was created in 1888 and is one of the oldest features of the Morris estate. Originally comprised of fruits, vegetables, flowers, a few roses, and a specimen chestnut tree, Lydia Morris transformed this mixed garden into a Rose Garden in 1924. Once a monoculture of roses, today the Rose Garden contains a mix of roses, perennials, annuals and woody plants with height elements and garden ornaments added to create a look reminiscent of the Victorian era.

Participants will also have a chance to wander and explore the Arboretum grounds on their own. A tent will be available to eat lunch out of the sun. Participants are welcome to bring their own bagged lunch, or pick up a grab-and-go item from the arboretum gift shop.


Morris Arboretum has ample free parking. Accessible parking is available in the parking lot just beyond the Widener Visitor Center

Morris Arboretum is about a half mile walk from the Germantown Ave and Hillcrest Ave bus stop servicing the L and 97 lines.

All in-person ARTZ events require proof of vaccination and masking in indoor areas. Please remember to bring either your vaccination card or a photo of it on your cell phone as well as a mask for each participant in your party, worn over the nose and mouth (we recommend N95 or KN95 masks if at all possible).
