Hops and History: A Tour of Bloomfield Farm (Class is Full)
Bob Gutowski - Director of Education and Visitor Experience

Enjoy an evening walking tour of Bloomfield Farm followed by a beer tasting in the historic Springfield Mills. The Farm is not usually open to the public so take this opportunity to explore its historic structures, landscape, fauna, and special plants. Arboretum staff historian, Bob Gutowski will help you explore the Bloomfield Barn, Springfield Mills, and other features. The mill has been restored to operation with much of its century-old machinery. The mill buildings dating back to the 1760s include the
Arboretum’s oldest architectural features. After the tour we will taste a variety of interesting local beers while enjoying the atmosphere of the mill and its setting along the Wissahickon. Snacks will be included. Dress to explore. Meet in the Bloomfield Farm parking lot. Look for the paved road across Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Take the second right into the parking lot where Bob will be waiting for you.
