On Saturday, September 26, at 10 am, Wild Ones members are invited for a visit at the
Josephine Sculpture Park
in Frankfort, 3355 Lawrenceburg Road
The Sculpture Park is a unique and exciting addition to the garden landscapes of the Bluegrass. Privately owned and managed, an area of former farmland has been returned to nature while also serving as an exhibit space for large outdoor sculptures, many of high artistic value. While the Park is a work in progress, as any serious garden must be, it has achieved a happy marriage between art and nature. Check it out at josephinesculpturepark.org/
Much effort has gone into removing invasives on the property and creating walking paths. Many trees and shrubs were planted over the last few years. Our Wild Ones chapter’s special contribution has been a $500 grant to help plant a pollinator garden. The excursion on Sept. 26 serves as an opportunity for all of us to see what our money has created.
For those of us who have been itching for a safe place that might take us beyond the monotonous walks along our suburban streets, the Sculpture Park cannot be beat. A staff member will show the garden we helped fund to masked groups of 10 persons, based on a first-come-first served basis. Those who arrive a little later, may join a second and possibly a third group waiting for their turn while taking in the many delightful surprises presented by the sculptures. Most reveal themselves only during a walk of the grounds.
In addition to broad paths, there is ample space for small groups to picnic. At least some of us will want to linger for a distanced gathering and chat. Please join us if you feel comfortable. Bringing your own food, drink and possibly a chair (though there are picnic tables on the ground). This should be an interesting and fun event!
