Fresh On Fridays

This is one of our most popular events for a variety of reasons. Every Friday morning 8am to 11am, June through August guests are able to purchase beautiful, freshly-cut bouquets from the Gardens, arranged by our creative volunteers. These stunning offerings make perfect gifts, as enhancements to week-end entertaining needs, or as a treat for oneself!

Guests are also invited to visit with old and new friends on the patio of the Nature Education Pavilion while enjoying complimentary coffee, tea, and treats. Before or after doing that, they can learn more about gardening through programs presented by area experts in bee-keeping, composting, planting, gardening, and a host of other topics. These programs are offered at the Mother Earth Work Shop (MEWS) on our grounds. Our calendar will have more specifics.

And, children are invited to specially-themed gardening programs and events in the Kids BEE Happy Gardens from 9am-11am. There they will explore many aspects of nature through projects, guest speakers, green-thumb activities, art and other experiences.
