THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED. WE ARE HOPING TO REPLACE IT WITH A SPRING/SUMMER EVENT IN 2021. Enjoy an afternoon of farm to table goodness.

Begin with a lunch made with in-season goods from our farm and farm store prepared by our resident chef, Ann Testa.

Then tour our newly expanded flower garden and make a fall-themed floral arrangement to take home with you, taught by garden manager, Candace Minster.

Cost is $60 per person which includes lunch, tour of the newly expanded flower garden, and take-home floral arrangement.

Please register by Sept. 28. We will have 10 participants only.

Note: The Center is home to two cats and although they may not be present for the event, if you are highly allergic, please use caution.
