In this hands on tour, you will blow your own glass flower to create your unique Alaskan souvenir!
Garden lovers unite! First, one of our charismatic Guides will lead you on an interpretive tour of the Garden, teaching you everything about the Historic Henry Clark Farm-site dating back to the Gold Rush era. The garden’s setting against the backdrop of dramatic mountains and the Harding Glacier is the pride of Alaska’s Garden City. Keep an eye out for whimsical glass installations throughout the garden, created on site by our very own glass artisans.
We hope you have found the flowers and glass creations inspiring because now, you will create your own hand blown glass garden flower with the help of our talented glassblowing team. Your handmade creation will be shipped to your home (additional charge for international shipping) to remind you of your Alaskan adventures. Select your colors and design to create an experience unique to you, capturing your very own breath of fresh Alaskan air.
Your guide will then take you into the Glass Gallery for a short tour of our hand blown work. We are the only producing blown glass studio in Alaska. We have 5 full time Glass Artists that have created many stunning pieces for you to admire & take home, or have shipped home for you. We ship anywhere in the world!
Be sure to save some time to dine at our garden fresh restaurant, Poppies. Open daily from 11-4, Poppioes showcases produce from our USDA certified organic garden. Try our delicious lunch specials, tea service or pie. Poppies Garden Restaurant also offers a selection of beer, wine, and our house specialty, rhubarb mimosas!
