Many unique family events and seminars are hosted by Edward’s Garden Center. Our “hands-on” seminars are held on Sunday mornings at 11 AM.
Most educational seminars are free. A nominal fee is charged for hands-on seminars to cover the cost of materials.
Every Sunday at 2:00 P.M., during the months of July and August, Edward’s Garden Center offers free children’s programs. Examples include: Magic Show, Juggler, Animal Balloons, Face Painting, Reptile Show!
We hope that you enjoy our seminars and events as much as we enjoy having you as our guest!
Every summer we have busloads of children from local schools and day camps visit our Garden Center where they are led on a guided tour to meet Edward’s pets and interact with our Garden Center. Kids will see everything from Iguanas, Tortoise, Koi Fish, and Ducks to Pheasants, Bunnies and Goats, Water Features and the Home of Gnomes. We love kids!
There is a $40.00 charge for the tour and a two-week advance registration is required. All children will receive a ring pop at the end of the tour. Tours last approximately one hour.
