Private Group Tours

The John Fairey Garden has a long history of welcoming groups, such as garden clubs, master gardener associations, native plant organizations, landscape architecture firms and many others. The hour and a half guided tour is specially designed to meet the needs of the group.

We also offer several catered lunch packages served under the oaks in the garden. Or groups may bring their own lunch. Or our staff can recommend restaurants in the area.

Special Assistance

We apologize that neither paths nor bathrooms are ADA accessible. The paths contain numerous steps and roots and thus are unable to accommodate walkers, wheel chairs and strollers.
