Behnke Lecture Video Available

On May 2, Stephanie Fleming, Vice President of Behnke Nurseries (and granddaughter of the founders) gave a Greenbelt Museum lecture about the history of the beloved local institution, which closed its gates this past weekend after 89 years.

It is now available to watch above or on the City of Greenbelt's YouTube channel. Stay tuned for information about a screening of the lecture in the late Summer.
