It is time to attend the gardening social event of the year.  Whether it is to connect with friends, enjoy delicious food or sip wine, the Arboretum’s Garden Social has it all! Our theme this year is “Let’s Celebrate: A Golden Anniversary” marking our 50th anniversary. As many of you know, event ticket holders have the first chance at purchasing the best plants at the spring plant sale (Saturday for the general public). Leah Worth, Horticulture Project Manager for the Arboretum, will have a wonderful selection of plants.

We are honored to have Charity Nebbe as our celebrity auctioneer. She is the host of Iowa Public Radio and TV shows Talk of Iowa and Iowa Ingredient.

You will be treated to an evening featuring live music along with a delicious dinner.  The live auction follows with hundreds of unique plants, garden-related items, and gifts to bid on. Auctioneers J&J Auction Company will set the stage for an entertaining and engaging evening. We also added a wine swap and a 50/50 raffle for you to enjoy and to further support this important fundraising event.

Come early to buy plants and stay late to enjoy the festivities.
