    Parking

    Parking

  • Shuttle service runs 10a to 11p.
  • Watch for parking lot update signs on Lowell Park and Timber Creek roads.
  • PARKING UPDATE: We will be starting parking using the Shopko parking lot. That is a go. The grounds may likely be too saturated to start in DG. Hopefully it may dry out. Wendler so far is still a go. Basically we want to wait as long as possible to use grass lots. That holds doubly true if we get rain on Friday night.

    FAQs: Here's the scoop: 3 shuttles running all the time. My guess: 10-15 intervals. Depends on on/off loading times. Coolers/chairs/blankets: put them right on the shuttle. They will run you right to the entry gate like a rock star. No drop offs. Shopko lot: Shuttle tent located on east side of lot towards the back corner.

    Why

    Why

    We love gardening, no two ways around it.

    We love gardeners.

    They’re the coolest, most open-minded people around.

    We feel lucky doing a job we love.

    We opened this garden center

    because it’s a fantastic way

    to meet like-minded people,

    growing plants, friendship and community,

    one seed at a time.
