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.
