Fresh On Fridays

Join us for one of most popular events

Fresh on Fridays is one of our most popular events. Every Friday morning from 9am to 11am in June through early September 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 weekend 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, or infused water. Before or after doing so, guests can learn more about gardening through programs presented by area experts in beekeeping, composting, planting, gardening, and a host of other topics. These programs are offered at the Mother Earth’s Workshop (MEWS) on our grounds. Check our calendar for specific program details.
