It’s located in Kingston, RI, (Zone 6b) at the top of Kingston Hill. The climate is moderated by the Atlantic Ocean and Narragansett Bay, just 8 miles from campus.

    One of the nice things about it is getting to do so many kinds of interesting things –propagating, planting, design, pruning, etc.

    Hi! I am wondering if the public is allowed to visit the conservatory, and if so, where it is located. Thank you so much! Rosie Sosnowski
