Please keep in mind that our business can be greatly affected by weather and other circumstances. So, events are subject to change. Please also note, the greenhouse where our trains are located can get *VERY* hot and humid. It’s great for tropical plants, but not always for extra large model railroad sets! Sometimes we will keep the trains off during bursts of extreme heat, but you’re always welcome to stop by to walk around them. They’re not going anywhere!

*GARDEN CLUB MEMBERS Receive a $5 discount on many of our offered workshops and classes. IMPORTANT: Please pre-register or RSVP for classes and workshops when noted. Classes will be canceled if the hosts do not think we have a good sized attendance.
