Annual Garden Events

Yearly Gatherings

For over thirty-five years, Leach Botanical Garden has invited visitors to enjoy the Garden through an annual cycle of Garden Events. Some of these events are vitally important because they help to raise funds to support the Garden’s operation. The annual English Teas and Summer Lecture Series are popular examples.

While it does not take place at the Garden, the Annual Plant Sale in the spring —coming soon! Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Floyd Light M.S.— offers gardeners and horticulturists of all sorts the opportunity to purchase plants from specialty nurseries as well as those propagated from our diverse plant collection. The plant sale is a fundraiser as well.

Garden Events also include the annual Children’s Nature Fair —on hiatus in 2020— which is not a fundraising event but an invitation to families to experience nature and to learn about plants, animals and their habitat and create fun art and craft projects in an enjoyable setting. Great for kids of all ages.

We are pleased to co-host the quarterly literary reading series Lilla Lit on the 1st Sundays in February, May, August and November.

New Garden Events may be added to the calendar in years to come as new areas of the Garden are developed and our capacity to serve the public increases. Be sure to check our calendar for the most up to date details.
