Open Times

Open Times are scheduled sessions at our Community Green Spaces that include FREE staff-led activities for children, families, neighbors, volunteers, and anyone who wants to drop by. Open Times are a chance for visitors (especially kids) to experience the garden through a variety of activities, such as cooking, art, and maintenance. Anyone who comes to lend a hand is welcome to take home some garden goodies as part of our "you help, you harvest" policy. Open Times occur five days a week between April and November. Open Times are cancelled during inclement weather, including heavy rain or temperatures over 100 degrees. For more information, contact info@cityblossoms.org.
