Passionate gardeners Maureen and Mike Ruettgers invite visitors of all ages to share a day of adventure and inspiration in their extraordinary Gardens at Clock Barn. From a stylish design full of choice plants, to an inventive children’s garden—a veritable wonderland designed to ignite curiosity and elicit delight in young gardeners, from toddlers on up—there are delights to discover for everyone. These will include edible treats (plus recipes) from the garden for all to share. Activities for families will abound throughout the day, from a scavenger hunt to investigating how root crops grow, plus a pizza garden, pumpkin patch, fairy garden and tee pee to explore. Maureen and Mike’s daughter, Abigail Flanagan, will have a carefully curated array of cookbooks written with kids in mind for sale from her online shop, Farm & Fable.
Garden admission is $7 per person and children 12 & under are free. There is no additional fee for the Family Time program.
