Family Make and Take: Build a Fairy Garden

Join us as we create miniature lands for our mystical garden friends. Discover which plants fairies fancy as you design, plant and landscape a tiny fairy oasis.


Family Make and Take programs offer a space for children and their grownups to connect with natural materials and create together. These self-guided and self-paced programs are designed to provide a creative environment that sparks imagination. The Gardens provides the space and supplies. You and your family provide the ideas and creativity!


Audience: Materials provided are appropriate for families with children ages 5 and up.


Price: $15 per project fee non-members; $12 per project fee members. Each project fee includes one garden container, plant and access to a variety of natural and manmade materials to use for decoration.


Please note, the program fee does not include admission to the main Gardens. Both members and non-members must reserve or purchase general admission tickets to the Gardens if you plan to visit them before or after your program.


Registration Instructions: Pre-registration is required. Program registration will not be available onsite. 


The number of project fees should equal the number of people making an individual fairy garden.
