Events at the nursery

We have a variety of events lined up for this spring and we are excited to introduce new ones this year! If you are interested in attending an event, please register so that we know how many people to expect. 

Things to know about events at Solomon's Gardens:

1) Parking is limited inside the nursery so you may have to park on the street and walk in. We recommend arriving 10 minutes early to allow for parking and walking to the event.

2) We have porta-potties at the nursery, not regular bathrooms. 

3) For events that are not free, you must pay at the nursery or over-the-phone before you will be officially registered.
