Hurricane Irma Update: The Kampong is Closed for Recovery

Hurricane Irma has passed and we are glad to report that our staff are safe and the historic structures at The Kampong suffered little damage. Tragically, the living collections were significantly damaged and the garden will remain closed for hurricane recovery for several weeks.
