Harvesting Our History: The Story of Queens Botanical Garden
Tuesdays to Sundays, May 6 through September 28
Queens Botanical Garden grew out of the Gardens on Parade exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair and was moved to its current location to make way for the 1964 World's Fair. Drawing on materials from QBG's archives, public archives and private collections, Harvesting Our History commemorates these origins, traces QBG's development, and looks to the future of the place where people, plants and cultures meet.
Sunday, June 8, 2 to 4pm
