BATW MARCH MEETING – FILOLI – March 16
Our March BATW meeting will be held at Filoli gardens in Woodside. If you have never visited, it is reminiscent of an English country estate – only in this case it is a 654-acre American grand country garden estate that surrounds a 43-room modified Georgian mansion.
We will gather in a meeting room for our business meeting, which will be followed by an introduction to the property and what we will see on our tour. This will be followed by a guided two-hour tour of the house and 16-acre mature formal English Renaissance garden. The gardens are spectacular in February and March, when more than 200,000 daffodils bloom. After, we have the option of dining at our own expense at a lovely cafe on property. You might also want to allow some time for visiting the exceptional gift shop.
NOTE: For this meeting, we will need to close registration earlier than normal. Please plan to have your registration returned by end of day March 5. Please RSVP to your emailed invitation; remember that BATW’s attendance/cancellation policy is in effect.
