Thursday Picnics in the Garden- August 6, 2020
Alaskan summers are meant to be enjoyed outside! While we are unable to
have a full-scale summer Gala this year, please come enjoy a beautiful
picnic dinner for two or bring your friends and family with you to the
Garden. Every Thursday this summer, from June 11th through August 27th,
the Garden will be available 6:00-8:00pm for you to enjoy a private
picnic dinner! The Garden will be otherwise closed to visitors during
this time. We'll set up tents (if it rains), tables, and chairs, or
feel free to bring your own blanket to enjoy an evening under the
forest canopy (and don't worry, we'll provide an organic mosquito
repellent in your picnic bag).
Dinners are conveniently packed in a take-home reusable planter bag. All dinners are packaged with recyclable materials and drinks are in reusable mason jars for you to take home; food should never be left unattended in the Garden. Parties are limited to 10 people to ensure adequate social distancing. We will space parties throughout the Garden ensuring no more than two separate parties are in the larger gardens. We also have limited space inside of our Greenhouse (call to see if indoor space is available). Enjoy food catered by Middle Way Cafe', then stroll through the gardens, view art for sale by local artists, or create your own art with an included nature journal for the kids.
Picnics will take place rain or shine and no cancellations will be accepted due to rain (please come dressed for the weather). All requests for cancellations or rescheduling must be received by 5pm on the Monday prior to your Thursday picnic. No cancellations will be accepted after this time.
