Group Tours


 Tours last for about an hour, depending on the level of engagement during the tour. 

Picnic/Food Options:

Guests are more than welcome to have picnics onsite, we do not have a cafe, so we suggest bringing sack lunches or ordering for delivery. All garden seating spaces & picnic areas are on a first-come-first-serve basis. There is patio space available in the Crockett Garden, the patio offers bistro tables with seating for around 20 people. Throughout the garden there are picnic tables and benches, and plenty of green space.

We do not allow folding tables, pop-up tents, or large coolers unless a Garden space is rented. We are also pack in/pack out, please bring a trash sack along. If you'd like to look at renting a space or a classroom for your visit, please let us know and we can put you in contact with our rentals team.
