Join First Saturday PDXfor an in-person early summer guided tour of the Garden of Awakening Orchids (蘭蘇園) , also known as Lan Su Chinese Garden. Authentically modeled after the literati gardens of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), this landscaping and architectural achievement has roots (literally) dating back thousands of years from Portland’s Sister City, Suzhou, China. Join us for a no-host lunch afterwards to celebrate the last program of our season.
