"July 4th in a Bag"  Giveaway
Register by June 25
Curbside Pick ups Scheduled on July 1
Free
Every year, in honor of Independence Day, Morven hosts a free event to celebrate our American heritage at the home-turned-museum of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. While our historic gardens remain open for socially distant visits, we won't be hosting onsite activities. Therefore we are offering “July 4th in a Bag” to the first 100 respondents. The bag holds a variety of activities to use on the 4th, throughout July, and in fact, for a lifetime. Most appropriate for ages 7 through adult. Registration by June 25  is required. One bag per family. Confirmations for July 1 pickups will be sent after June 25.

Wendy Hollender returns with a new type of botanical illustration workshop. Inspired by flowers grown in Morven's historic gardens, students will participate in this LIVE two-day Zoom workshop and draw with Wendy - with a twist only for Morven: safe curbside pick-up of flowers to work with from home the day before the workshop. Wendy starts you off on Friday via Zoom and draws along with you.  Then on Sunday, she provides personalized critiques of everyone's work. Wendy's past workshops have sold out quickly. Full details, links, and flower pick up instructions upon registration.
