Many unique family events are hosted by Edward’s Garden Center. From our annual Spring Open House to our Fall Festival to our Holiday Celebration…..each event is designed for the season with everything from face painting and pony rides to Santa and live reindeer. Our fall pet parade is a blast and the food vendors are always a hit. (A portion of event proceeds benefit Blue Chip Farm Animal Rescue.) What’s more, who else but Edward’s offers free seminars and workshops throughout the year on everything from Custom Potting and Pruning to Patio Installation and Bow Making? All are taught by our staff of experts.
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 of Edward’s pets. Kids will see everything from Iguanas, Tortoise, Koi Fish and Ducks to Pheasants, Bunnies and Goats. 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 goodie bag at the end of the tour. Tours last approximately one hour.
