The Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library has dedicated its newly completed Brown Horticulture Learning Center to Alice Cary Brown and W.L. Lyons Brown (Lee), honoring them for their $1 million gift enabling Winterthur to enhance its educational Garden programming for members and the public.

Celebrating the adaptive renovation of an original estate greenhouse, Alice Cary Brown joined Winterthur trustees, staff, and friends in heralding the opening of the 3,000–square-foot building, which will create new opportunities for Winterthur’s thriving horticultural education program.

Lee and Alice Cary Brown have long been affiliated with Winterthur. Lee served on the Winterthur Board of Trustees beginning in 1993 and was chairman from 1997 to 2001. Alice Cary has served on the Winterthur Board since 2007 and has served as chair of the Trustees Garden Committee since 2010.
The center will offer programs, workshops, and demonstrations for gardeners of all skill levels, from beginner to master gardener. Programming will be taught by Winterthur’s internationally acclaimed garden staff as well as by guest lecturers and presenters. –
