Sunflower Journeys Program 1609
Flower Gardens: Sunflower Journeys looks at the tradition of growing flowers on the plains, beginning in pioneer times. See why women settlers in particular cherished their often-meager gardens and learn about some of the flower varieties they cultivated. Binkley’s Tulip Tour: Visit a private garden in Topeka awash in no less than 25,000 tulips. Each year, Jerold Binkley welcomes hundreds of visitors into his garden in southwest Topeka. Proceeds from the tours are funding other landscaping projects in the area. Botanica: Explore the themed gardens and butterfly house at Wichita’s Botanica. The lush gardens offer visitors a quiet respite from the bustle of the city. See how gardens provide educational opportunities to children, and meet some of the volunteers who tend the grounds.
