Open Garden Events

Welcome to our Summer Open Gardens

We look forward to spending time with you in the gardens often this summer.  We will be holding open garden events every Tuesday Evening from 4:30 to 6:30pm and Thursday morning from 8:30 to 10:30 am over the summer.  Please check out our open garden calendar below to see where to find us throughout the summer.

What is a Garden Passport?

A GROW Garden Passport is your way to track your "visits" to our open garden events and to recognize when you have completed a "challenge" to learn more in the garden.

Bring your GROW Garden Passport to our Great GROW Get Together at the Myrick Park Center on August 25th, 2022 to receive your own GROW t-shirt in celebration of your accomplishments!  You will also have your name entered in a GRAND PRIZE drawing once for every "visit" or "challenge" you have completed over the summer.

How can you get your own Garden Passport?
We will be selling passports at our spring plant sale and all of our open garden events.  Passports cost $10.  With your passport you will receive a coupon for your own GROW shirt to be redeemed on August 25th at the Great GROW Get Together event.  You will also get a ticket good for one adult to attend the Great GROW Get Together event (children are free). Collectively these coupons have a $20 value!
