Summer Nights

Summer Nights

June 2-September 22, 2022 | Thursdays, 5-8pm

Head to Filoli any Thursday evening for a summer meet up with friends. Stroll the Garden, grab a refreshing drink, and watch the sun set across the landscape.

For #WelcomingWeek2021 we asked visitors to share vegetables, fruits, and spices we could grow to foster a sense of belonging in the Vegetable Garden.

September 15

To celebrate Welcoming Week, check out the plots planted with vegetables inspired by visitors’ food traditions and learn about how the San Mateo Office of Immigrant Services supports our immigrant community. Poet and social justice activist Aileen Cassinetto leads a family-friendly drop-in poetry activity inspired by the colorful vegetables growing around us. For the preschool poets to-be, gather around for garden storytime at 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm.

September 22

Learn tips and tricks for how to compost in your own home garden with the County of San Mateo’s Office of Sustainability. Bring your kids to meet the worms in their worm bin and participate in a quick activity.
