Spooktacular Fall Tours.

Lizards, Salamanders and Skinks!
  Oh My!

For The Garden will host a fall program for early childhood and elementary school-aged children. We invite your group to experience this fun and educational program about lizards, salamanders and skinks. We will learn facts and reasons why they are cool and not to be feared! You never know what you will see during your visit here! For The Garden promises an hour full of information disguised as fun! Our program includes a greenhouse tour, stop in the pumpkin patch, pumpkin painting and a snack/beverage. Each field trip will end with a trip through our fun (not spooky) maze!

Additional details:

  • The program runs October 1st – 31st. We book up quickly so please schedule in advance.
  • The program lasts approximately one hour.
  • Our facility is wheelchair accessible and the event is held rain or shine.
  • The program costs $6.00 per child which includes a snack and a pumpkin for painting.
  • The Lizards, Salamanders & Skinks, OH MY! Program was created by a certified elementary school teacher and all information and activities are age-appropriate.
  • Badges will be available for $1.50 each.

 For The Garden had over 1,000 area children participate in our Fall program last year…we can’t wait to see YOUR group this October!

October Gardening Tips:

  • Keep leaves off of newly seeded areas
  • Plant bulbs for spring blooms
  • Plant pansies for fall, winter and early spring color
  • Begin clean-up of annual, perennial and vegetable gardens
  • Empty containers and store for the winter (remember clay and ceramic pots will crack if left outside where water can settle then freeze)
  • Leave a few spent roses for new seeds to develop
  • Aerate and overseed lawns as needed-also a good time to fertilize
  • Pick large green tomatoes just before frost
  • Dig Banana Tree and other tropical bulbs/roots to store for winter
  • Don't cut back cone flowers, black-eyed susans, and ornamental grasses.
    The birds love the seeds!
