On March 5, visit during Vanilla Sunday to celebrate the fascinating orchid that brings us one of the world’s most beloved spices: vanilla!

With Orchid Daze in full bloom, a visit to the Garden from 1 – 4 p.m. is the perfect way to shake off the winter blues.

Indulge the senses and learn interesting info at vanilla discovery stations. Get up close with a vanilla orchid and learn how it flavors our favorite desserts.

Watch a vanilla-inspired chef demonstration in the Outdoor Kitchen by local pastry chef, Crystal Leach at 1:30, 2:30 or 3:30 p.m. Take home her recipe along with techniques for making your own delicious vanilla extract at home.

Savor a mini vanilla ice cream sundae to the sounds of music by Otto Rondon, founder of Tahino Music, while the little sprouts romp and enjoy vanilla-inspired activities.

In the event of inclement weather, activities will be moved inside. Samples are available while supplies last.
