Story Hour with Petunia

Fridays at 10am

Location: The Potting Shed

Did you know we have a fairy living in our Garden Center? Her name is Petunia and she helped us build the Little Free Library! We call it “Petunia’s Pages by the Pond.” Now that school is out for the summer, Petunia has offered to come by on Friday mornings and read us a story!

We’ll open the Potting Shed early so you can get some delicious Sunset Slush to eat while you listen. Perfect for ages 3-6 but open to all ages. Grown ups must stay with their kiddos during this event.

This event is FREE to attend. Please let us know you’ll be coming by signing up for each date you’d like to attend. See you soon!
