The Vanderbilt Museum will host its second annual Gardeners Showcase, which will open to the public on Saturday, June 1. The Museum invites local nurseries and garden designers to show off their skills and creativity in one of the gardens that grace the 43-acre waterfront estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Spots are still open for several showcases, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participants, in return for their skills, effort and contribution, will receive:

  • Signage that identifies their business, at each garden showcase site. This signage will be viewed by the more than 70,000 anticipated Vanderbilt visitors during the spring, summer and fall.
