Public Events and Tours

Garden Tour

Our Extension Master Gardeners sponsor a variety of inspiring and educational events throughout the year for area gardeners. Check our events calendar often for up-to-date information on current offerings. 

Design & Grow Gardening Workshop 

Design & Grow is an annual event packed with ideas and information for beginning and longtime gardeners alike. It provides an opportunity to learn from the pros, garner ideas for your garden and landscape, and find inspiration in new plants and gardening experiences. This event is typically held in early March. Please note: This event will not be held in 2024, but we anticipate it will return in the spring of 2025

Gardening Classes in partnership with the Wichita Public Library

Free gardening classes are scheduled twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, in partnership with the Wichita Public Library. They are typically offered both in person, and virtually via Zoom if preferred. For information on the most current class offerings check our events calendar, or go to the Wichita Public Library gardening events page to register. 

Tools & Treasures Sale (April 4-6, 2024)

This yearly spring shopping extravaganza is a gardeners dream and includes new and gently used gardening tools, containers/planters, bird feeders/bird houses, and other miscellaneous items too numerous to list.  In 2024, Tools & Treasures is scheduled for April 4-6.

Spring Garden Fair (May 4, 2024)

Get a fresh start on your gardening each year at the Spring Garden Fair, held annually in early May.
