Daily Schedule and Updates

The Gardener's Cottage Ticket and Information Center is now open.

As of August 30, 2021
In light of the continued high number of positive COVID cases in our area and its significant impact throughout the community, including hospitals and schools, Brookgreen will begin requiring guests, staff, and volunteers to wear a face-covering while inside public buildings, including Keepsakes, all galleries, and food services areas. 

This temporary change aligns us with the most recent guidance from SC DHEC, which states everyone, regardless of vaccination status, should wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission.
