Programs and Events

Albert’s Garden has been following Green Thumb protocol during the pandemic and all public community events were suspended this year. We were open on a limited basis for small private events and hope to resume full community access practices as soon as it is safe to do so. If you would like to be added to our e-mail invitation list or wish to make an inquiry, please notify us through our Contact Us page.

2020 – Private Events Only 

The Hamsten-Tandon Wedding — October 2020

Sofia Carlsson Hamsten and Aditya Tandon were married in Albert’s Garden. In attendance were Erica Kulka and Peter Salanki.  The bride’s bouquet was created by Nicole Blau from garden cuttings; photos by John Shuttleworth. Thank you to the wedding party for letting us share your photos.


Albert’s Garden lends its serene natural beauty to many different kinds of events.  That summer Renea LaRiviere staged a photo shoot of her clothing line, Zepherina, in the garden.  In her words, “A beautiful photo shoot, with the ever-gorgeous Albert’s Garden as a backdrop.” The fashion layout appeared in VOGUE, March 2020
