Our York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 5 for Spring Plant Sale Preview Party.
Families are invited to join us on Earth Day, Friday April 22, to celebrate the many miracles of Mother Earth. From 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the Mordecai Children’s Garden, we’ll have many ways for you to explore, discover and celebrate nature. You’ll learn how to make a difference with special activities such as seed planting, bird feeders and waste sorting. Digger the Marmot will join us with interactive stories the whole family will enjoy. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy in the Children’s Garden. Snacks will be available at the campfire in Sagebrush Stage.
