The 2018 Botanic Garden event season is only just beginning...

Our March and April line-up is now ready for sign-ups — we hope you can join us soon!

Many of our events here at The Botanic Garden are free and some include a registration fee. Proceeds from paid events benefit the Garden and also help us keep attracting high caliber presenters! Events that are free include a request for a free-will donation from attendees. For free event registration, you’re able to make a donation online through MyNorth Tickets when you ‘check out’ or can plan to bring your free-will donation to the event. Thank you!
