This free event features activities for all ages: garden tours with horticulturist, Casey Jones; a fun demonstration for children; music and refreshments including hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls. Bring your carved pumpkin for display during the event. Your creativity could earn you a prize.
“The cooler weather makes it a great time to visit The Garden,” said Rene Fleming, water and energy conservation coordinator for City of St. George. “This is an opportunity to see the great educational benefits this garden provides while enjoying the sights and smells of the crisp autumn season.”
This year the event has a new element. Guests are invited to bring their jack-o-lanterns for display during the event. Pumpkins need to be on display by 6 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for different categories.
The Garden in Tonaquint Park demonstrates and provides education on water-efficient landscapes including best management practices to minimize landscape water use. It was dedicated by Washington County Water Conservancy District and the City of St. George in 2002 as the area’s first water-wise garden.
