useful information

Unless noted otherwise, all talks and events meet in our Harry and Mary Witte Learning Center. The Farm Market is held in the red building.

No pre-registration is required for our garden talks; fees (if any) are indicated in the event listings. Fees for “Make-n-Take” workshops, Little Bugs sessions, and some special events are listed; please note that because we purchase materials for these workshops based on how many people are signed up, pre-registration and pre-payment are required. We can only give refunds (less service fees) if we are notified of cancellation at least 72 hours in advance of the class.

Planning an event? Rockledge Gardens is a stunning venue for weddings, fundraisers, corporate events, and more! More information on our private rentals page, or email events@rockledgegardens.com.
