Admission to the gardens is free! We’ll meet at the Copper Kettle Coffee Bar inside the gardens. Weather permitting, we’ll either explore the gardens or stay in the coffee shop.
*There are many nooks and places with benches where we can camp out among the gardens. Feel free to pack snacks to share or blankets to sit on, but all you need to bring is yourself. Food is also available for purchase inside the coffee shop. Casey will have a picnic basket with treats (and probably tea) for the group, so please communicate any dietary restrictions when you RSVP!
