Our Commitment to You: Upcoming Events

The primary goal of events at the Gardens has been to engage a diverse audience with a variety of events that bring us together to celebrate, to learn, and to rest IN the beauty of the Gardens. Our challenge now is to find ways to connect and to educate in new and different ways in this season of coronavirus. We, a few of the stewards of Central Gardens, assure you that we accept that challenge.

We will continue to explore the many details, including how to work with community partners, to safely and meaningfully bring opportunities to you FROM the Gardens such as cooking demos with Healthy Harvest of North Iowa, youth gardening with ISU Extension, Story Time and literature with CL Library and stimulating creativity with the CL Arts Center.

The ways in which we work and play both IN the Gardens and FROM the Gardens may look different this year, but we are committed to do our best to bring you opportunities to connect, grow, and serve. Please follow us on Facebook, stay tuned to our website, and check the Clear Lake Mirror Reporter for updates and details about these and other events and programs, including those offered online, in the coming weeks.

Juni West , Singer-Songwriter - Americana/Indie Folk Kicks Off Picnics and Performance July 26th!

Iowa Singer-songwriter Juni West has a folksy sound with a splash of that vintage rockabilly vibe and new western-outlaw swing. Her performances are filled with dynamic energy and her storytelling lyrics are captivating. In 2015 she independently released Warm Honey, a five-track demo album and in 2016 she was a selected artist for the Iowa Music Project for her song Creeping Eyes. Currently she is performing with a three piece band and recording her first full-length album. To learn more about Juni West and to hear a sample of her music, visit www.juniwest.com.
