Family Fun Day: Spring Plowing, Planting, & Painting!

Cultivate your curiosity at the Hermitage!  Spring means new growth, flowers and wonderful smells in the Hermitage Garden. Join us to dig in the dirt, look under things, smell, touch, wander, and wonder. Kids will be able to plant herbs to take home and watch grow. There will be garden pots to paint – just in time for Mother’s Day! Watch as we plant our crops using a horse-drawn plow to till the soil, learning about Tennessee’s crop seasons along the way. After a guided tour through the Garden, strike out on our wooded trails with your own “Hermitage Nature Bingo” game to see what plants, insects and bugs you can find on the land. Enjoy spring “thyme” at the Hermitage.


Family Fun Days activities are free with paid admission.  As always, members of The Hermitage enjoy free admission all year.  Learn more about membership opportunities here.
