Group Tours And Speakers

The growing place is pleased to offer a variety of opportunities for groups, scouts, and schools. We love creative activities featuring plants! If you don't see what you you're looking for - call us! We are happy to do customized programs.

For Children

We provide a wonderful learning experience for your preschool, birthday party, classroom, scouting or Mom's group at our Aurora location. Enjoy a garden tour, an introduction about the parts of a plant, and a hands-on nature activity. Other seasonal activities include paint a flower pot or pumpkin craft. Fees apply.

Our staff is available to guide you through our greenhouses and beautiful gardens. Be inspired by seeing thousands of plants in pleasing combinations. We welcome group tours throughout the growing season, except the month of May. Attendees will receive a $5.00 coupon useable the day of the tour. Box lunches may be available on request.
