Peek Behind the Petals

Join us for a member-exclusive, in-person presentation of Peek Behind the Petals!

Everyone knows that Phipps is the home of amazing seasonal flower shows — but did you know that it’s also home to some of the world’s greenest buildings? At this special, members-only event, Phipps President and CEO Richard V. Piacentini will tell the story of Phipps’ regenerative approach to sustainability and take you behind the scenes of the cutting-edge green buildings on campus, including the Nature Lab, Exhibit Staging Center and the award-winning Center for Sustainable Landscapes — the first and only building in the world to meet seven of the highest green certifications.

Peek Behind the Petals runs from 10 – 11 a.m. in Phipps Special Events Hall.
