Discover a special outdoor project that brings the past into conversation with today.

July 13 and August 24, 12:30pm

Jacob’s Pillow inaugurated the 1.5-acre Jacob’s Garden in 2021 as a place to grow fruits and vegetables and connect to the land’s multiple histories, drawing direct inspiration from Ted Shawn’s original 1931 “friendship garden.” On two summer Saturdays, visitors can tour the garden beds, apiary, rainwater harvesting system, and pollinator meadow of Jacob’s Garden. Join in a brief stretch and moving meditation led by Adam Weinert, and contribute to the garden’s health by turning the compost heap. Please wear clothes you can move in and bring gloves, if you have them. 

Jacob’s Pillow is committed to creating accessible spaces and experiences. Please contact with accessibility questions or accommodation requests.
