Out of an abundance of concern for the well being of our guests and community, and in keeping with the CDC’s guidance to practice social distancing, we are cancelling all assembled group activities and events from March 13 through April 22, which includes all classes originally scheduled during that time. Ticket buyers will be contacted with information about receiving a refund.

Approach gardening with a focus on adding ecological value as well as beauty to your landscape, using plants native to the Mid-Atlantic region. Support local birds, pollinators, and other wildlife by providing them with food and habitat. Join Gateway Garden Center Perennials Manager Nancy Bell and Peirce’s Woods horticulturist Pandora Young in a course that covers trees, shrubs, perennials, and vines for site types ranging from fields to forests. Land stewardship begins in your own garden!
