Canceled Events:

Due to the interactive nature of the following events we have made the decision to cancel them for this fall. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
Bridge Gardens Autumn Open House Canceled
Previously scheduled for Saturday, October 16 with hands-on activities for the family, we have made the decision to cancel for this year. We are sorry for any inconvenience the cancellation may have caused, and hope to have this annual event return in 2022.
As a reminder, Bridge Gardens is open every day for self-touring, from 10 am to 4 pm with free admission. Please come and visit this fall to see the beautiful colors of the season.
Kimchi from the Garden Canceled
Previously scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd, due to the hands on nature of the program we have made the decision to cancel the event.
Although we cannot gather to make kimchi this month, you can view the video that Garden Director Rick Bogusch and community gardener Justin Ruaysamran made last year on our blog here. You can view their full fermented vegetable video series here.
