Events + Tours
Being a four-acre botanical garden, we have numerous events and tours throughout the year. We offer a variety of options for individuals to large groups. We host several preschool and kindergarten field trips each year. Review the options below to find an opportunity that’s best for you. Many of our guided tours are provided by our long-time volunteers. Contact us directly to coordinate your needs ahead of time.
We are working on updating and preserving the historic Kruckeberg home. Our goal is to offer classes, meeting space, and events.
You can register for classes and events here.
2018 EVENTS AND CLASSES COMING SOON…
Visitors to the Garden and Nursery are welcome Friday through Sunday during open hours. You can enhance your visit with either a self-guided or docent-led tour.
Enhance your visit with a tour. Trained volunteer docents share the Garden’s history and plant collection. We offer tours on many Saturdays from May-October. General tours go into depth about the history of the Garden, the Kruckeberg legacy, and the plant collection and feature what is in bloom and of interest at that time. REGISTER FOR A TOUR
Advance registration is requested for all tours. Two hour tours are $10 per person.
Private, docent-led tours are available by arrangement and provide an overview of the plant collection or focus on a theme of your choice. Tours are $10/person, with a $60 minimum.

BEFORE YOUR TOUR
All visitors must remain on the paths to avoid soil compaction and damage to plants. The upper garden is flat, but not paved. The path to the lower garden is relatively steep (beyond ADA standard slope) but in some cases can be manageable by wheelchairs. We recommend that you visit in advance of your tour if you have concerns about accessibility. There are limited restroom facilities at the Garden and no wheelchair accessible restrooms. Please plan accordingly.
