Ceremony to Name the Greenhouse

Friday, November 8

4:00pm- at the Greenhouse & Wedding Lawn

On Tuesday, April 2, City Council unanimously approved the recommendation to adopt a resolution naming the Falkirk Cultural Center’s greenhouse the “Mulryan UC Marin Master Gardener Greenhouse”.

The naming of the greenhouse, along with a plaque to serve as a designation of the naming, will commemorate the contributions made by former Mayor Mulryan for his involvement in the procurement of Falkirk Cultural Center, as well as the Marin Master Gardeners’ role in restoring the greenhouse and the development and continued maintenance of several demonstration gardens.

Please join us to celebrate former Mayor Mulryan and volunteers of the UC Marin Master Gardeners.  Mayor Philips and representatives of the UC Cooperative Extension will say a few words before unveiling the plaque. Reception to follow on the Wedding Lawn.
