Garden Party

Thursday, June 10
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Choose your own adventure at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden! From patio to lawn gardening, you’ll have a chance to learn simple practices you can do at home to support sustainable gardening. In a pop-up style format, you and your guests will get exclusive access to the Garden while participating and hearing from various conservation and gardening experts.

All tickets include lunch catered by Trellis provided in a sustainable bento box, make your own native plant lotion and take home a unique container plant created by you! Also, you will be the first to explore our pollinator signs through an outdoor garden scavenger hunt. If you locate all the signs, you will win one free raffle ticket!
