What better way to celebrate National Public Gardens Day on May 11 than with Lunch in the Garden? Join BRIT and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for this free event that is open to the public.

This event commemorates National Public Gardens Day, a nationwide event that is designed to draw attention to our nation's public gardens, botanical gardens, arboreta, conservatories, educational gardens and historical landscapes. The Fort Worth Botanic Garden, the oldest botanic garden in the state of Texas, offers 110 acres that include the historic Rose Garden, Fuller Garden, Japanese Garden and more.

Several food trucks will be offering food for sale, music will be provided by local artist Victor Andrada and Botanic Garden senior horticulturist Steve Huddleston will offer a free, guided walking tour from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Attendees may also bring their own lunch and are invited to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs, though some outdoor seating will be provided.
