All Weekend

KidWay! Cycad Circle

Kitchen Botany!  When you eat celery, broccoli, tomatoes or asparagus, what part of the plant are you eating? The leaves, flowers, stem or roots?  Join us at KidWay, located near Cycad Circle, where using hand lenses and microscopes, children examine every day foods to discover the intricacies within.   Children can then make a "Seed baby" to take home and see the germination process in front of their eyes. 

Spring Tea Garden, each day: 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Enjoy our outdoor Tea Garden in the Baobab Courtyard located next to the historic Gate House. Under the shade of a lovely tent you will find beautifully set tables and volunteers waiting to serve you a delicious tea, complete with scones, savories, and sweets and of course wonderful teas blended especially for Fairchild. Live music is provided.
