5th Annual Peony and Bamboo Festival

Saturday/Sunday, May 6-7, 10 AM to 4 PM

We are glad we heeded the weather forecasts for April 22-23 and postponed the festival to avert a wet experience for garden visitors, lion dancers, cultural performers, vendors, and all our collaborators. Now we are looking forward to the forecasts of warmer and mostly sunny weather and a fun time on May 6-7. Look for more details in the next few days, on the website and by email alerts.

Dedication for the Friendship Wall

Give a Gift That Endures… Honor a Family Member or Friend with a Garden Brick

Years from now, visitors to the garden will pass by this wall and be delighted to say, “Look, right there, those are my grandparents’ names – they helped build this garden.”


Community friends prepare to cut the ribbon at the May 20, 2012, dedication for the Friendship Wall. To see more photos from this event,download a one-page pdf file.

Give a truly memorable, personalized gift.  If you purchase a brick for our donor wall (built in 2011) we will prepare a special, numbered certificate for you to give now. This is a great gift for someone who has everything.

Prices vary from $250 to $675 based on the size of the brick and number of lines included.

Bricks are made of green granite stone and have gold engraving.
