Peonies & Poppies: A Party in the Garden

For the second year in a row, we are delighted to be the key sponsor for the Alaska Botanical Garden’s annual Gala. This year’s theme “Peonies & Poppies” highlights the garden’s collections of over 100 varieties of Peony, as well as ten species of Blue Poppy.

Since the grand opening in 1993, the Alaska Botanical Garden (ABG) has been a peaceful oasis for the community to gather, learn and be inspired. The Garden consists of 110 acres of boreal forest with approximately 8 acres of cultivated gardens and interconnecting nature trails. ABG is active all year long with walks, workshops, day camps, plant sales and the new Holiday Lights, their most recent popular winter activity.

In March, the APCM Wealth Management for Individuals team spent a morning with Dr. Marilyn Baker for the Winter Plant Identification Class. We trekked around in the snow learning a variety of things like: why is it so difficult to identity white versus black spruce in southcentral Alaska; or what is that red stuff on the birch trees? (algae!). We believe the Gardens are a true asset to our community. As we support making your money grow, we also like to see our gardens grow. All in support of our overall well-being and heath.

Please consider joining us at the ABG event this year and come see the beautiful gardens for yourself. You can get your tickets here for Thursday, June 27 at 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Catered by South Restaurant + Coffeehouse, beer provided by Cynosure Brewery and music by Those Three Guys. Come visit with us at our table. There will also be unique art from local artists for purchase.

We will be there to stroll in the garden and enjoy good food and company. We hope to see you there!
