  • 2020 Garden Show

    Lewis and Clark Community College’s Monticello Sculpture Gardens celebrates the college’s 50th anniversary during the 2020 interactive summer garden show, Golden Jubilee.

    This year’s show features approximately one dozen decade-themed pocket gardens spread across the Godfrey Campus, which invites visitors to follow a journey through past 50 years.

    The Living Wall features a selfie station, the display gardens in the Rivers of Color offers visitors the opportunity to utilize tried and true and/or brand-new horticulture techniques themselves and more interactive experiences are included throughout the show.

    Golden Jubilee is the Monticello Sculpture Gardens’ 8th annual curated garden show. Previous shows have included SENSE-sational Blooms (2019), Bicentennial Blooms (2018), Solar Flair (2017), Gardens through the Looking Glass (2016), Garden of Eatin’ (2015), Bee-Dazzled (2014), and Menagerie in Bloom (2013).

    The gardens will be open for self-guided tours from June-August. Guided group tours are also available during the college’s regular business hours.

    The gardens are supported by generous donations made by private donors and groups including the Village of Godfrey, Joan and Charles Sheppard, Tri-County FS, Inc., Ball Horticultural, Josephine’s, L&C Student Government Association, John Medwedeff, Alton Community Service League, Monticello College Foundation and its alumnae, and the Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation. Technical assistance and permanent installations have been provided by the Missouri Botanical Garden, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Godfrey Women’s Club, and the family of Mrs. Peg Schmidt.
