We continue to be guided by the advice of local, provincial and national public health officials and will make decisions as needed moving forward.  For everyone's safety, for the time being: - We will only be admitting one class of students plus chaperones at a time.  - All classes/programs will be led by facilitators. We are sorry that we cannot accomodate self-guided class visits at this time. - Classes will be split into smaller groups to facilitate physical distancing in the Garden - We recommend all visitors to the Garden wear a mask. Masks are available at Visitor Services upon request. - Hand sanitizer is available at the front entrance and at various points throughout the Garden - Please don't hesitate to speak to us about any special needs or concerns you or your group may have. As a non-profit organization, the Garden is grateful for your continued support and understanding.
