Fairy Tea 
Immerse yourself in the magical world of fairies on Sunday, August 18 from 10 am–noon at Fairy Tea.  Children will have the opportunity to explore the garden, make a nature-themed fairy wand, enjoy a light “tea,” and make a teacup planter to take home, all in the company of garden fairies. This program is suited for any children 3+.  Children under the age of 3 are free with an accompanying adult/child ticket.
