Open House June 6 and 7: Details Here!

Edward's Garden Center Events

There’s just a few days left before our summer Open House. Our staff is very excited and has been busy getting everything ready. Because we want everyone to come, bring their kids and grandkids and have a fabulous time, we are giving you the plan for the weekend.

The Facts

Where: 525 River Street Forty Fort, 18704 (go all the way to the end of the road)

When: Saturday & Sunday, June 6 & 7, from 8 am to 4pm

What’s happening: Both days there will plenty to do and to see! We have Face Painting by Jessica making her return to paint beautiful masterpieces on the kids’ hands and faces. The kids at the past few events loved being transformed into their favorite characters and animals. Back by popular demand, we will have pony rides! Pony Party Paradise will be back with their lovely ponies.

Blue Chip Animal Rescue will be bringing a few of their pets who need to find “furever” homes. Visit with a few pets all day Saturday and Sunday. Proceeds from this event help support Blue Chip.

You can’t have a special event, without good food right? Not to worry, we will have several food vendors ready to provide you with tasty treats.

We also can’t forget to mention the reasons people visit Edward’s Garden Center every day. Kids love our scavenger hunt to find all of our animals. Kids love it because they get to meet all the animals and at the end of the scavenger hunt they get a prize bag. Our quality plants, trees and flowers also draw people from all over the Wyoming Valley. And don’t forget to stop into the gift shop to pick up some unique items.

Parking and admission for the Open House are free!

Rain or shine we hope to see you there! We promise you will see why Edward’s Garden Center is truly “A Place to Explore and Enjoy!”

Holiday Celebration at the Garden Center this Saturday!

Join us for a Holiday Celebration, this Saturday (Dec. 6) at Edward’s Garden Center!

Edward's Garden Center Holiday Celebration - Dec 6 2014 - Edward's Garden Center

To get you and the whole family into the holiday spirit, we have many events planned and special guests stopping by. The celebration starts at 9 a.m. and runs through 6 p.m.

Santa and two of his reindeer will be here to visit with all the kids and make sure each and everyone of them is on his nice list 😉 Kids and pets can also have their photo taken with Santa.

Entertainment will be provided by, the always popular, Dani-Elle. For those of you who haven’t been to one of the Garden Center events recently, this is Dani-Elle Kleha‘s fourth appearance.  She is a nationally known singer, from Jermyn Pa., who has two albums that she made in Nashville.  Anyone who attended our Christmas party last year or either of our Open House events this year, knows what a wonderfully entertaining young woman she is and can tell you, you don’t want to miss her performance.

Edward’s Garden Center, and owner Ed Kopec, are enthusiastic supporters of Blue Chip Animal Farms Animal Rescue. To help raise some funds for Blue Chip, Ed suggested an ornament contest. Everyone is invited to make an ornament for the Christmas tree. Anyone who brings an ornament will have the chance to win a $100 gift card to the Garden Center. The gift card will go to the creator of the best pet ornament, according to our staff.

Several food vendors will be ready to serve some delicious treats. Mrs. Fritz will be back with her homemade treats and hot soup will be available.

The highlight of the evening will happen at 5 p.m. when Nick and Tobey Kelly light the Christmas tree, in honor of all the pets in our area who have been adopted from Blue Chip.

This is a holiday party you don’t want to miss (and one that doesn’t require an ugly Christmas sweater lol)! If you need any ideas for creating your pet ornament, visit our Pinterest page.

Hope to see everyone at the Celebration on Saturday!

The Scoop: Garden Center Open House June 21

First of all, we want to thank everyone that came to our Open House is May. Our entire staff had a fabulous day speaking with everyone and offering advice.

Because the May Open House was such a success, we decided to add to our events for the Open House on Saturday.

Dani-Elle will again provide entertainment by singing her popular country hits. For those of you that don’t know, Dani-Elle Kleha is a nationally known singer, from Jermyn Pa. She  has two albums, that she made in Nashville.  Anyone who attended our Christmas party or May Open House knows what a wonderfully entertaining young woman she is and can tell you, you don’t want to miss her performance.

Our new additions to the Open House will delight kids and parents. We will have members of Blue Chip Animal Farms Animal Rescue, in Dallas, visiting with a few furry friends who are up for adoption. They will answer questions about adopting a pet and volunteering at the rescue. Kids will certainly enjoying petting the pets they bring.

We have also added face painting for the kids. Jessica from Face Painting by Jessica in Kingston will be available to create adorable designs on kids faces or hands. All donations from the face painting will go to Blue Chip.

Another exciting part of our Open House is of course the sales! This time we will have a buy one get one free sale on perennials. We will also have 30% off all fruit trees and blueberry bushes.
