Reminder: There will be no Kids Gardening Q&A Seminar Saturday. We are using the Gardening Seminar space for extra browsing room.
However, we are not taking this responsibility lightly; we are going above and beyond the protocol put forth by the CDC to sanitize register station surfaces and cart handles after every use, we have outlined on the ground 6 foot distances throughout the heaviest traveled areas of the nursery, we have put a halt to accepting cash and we will be monitoring the amount of people in any given area, which means we ask for your patience of possibly waiting a little longer in lines or waiting until the numbers of people diminish to enter the greenhouses.
We ask that you respect our decision to take these measures. If you don’t have the same concerns about this situation, that’s ok, but please understand that if we don’t utilize these actions, it could be the very thing that forces us to close our doors. We look forward to continuing to serve our community to the very best of our ability. Thank you so much for your support.
