Summer Is on the Horizon! Celebrate the Last Days of Spring with Garden Fest

Do you love visiting gardens? The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens is proud to present Garden Fest on Saturday, June 15th. Garden Fest is a family friendly festival in the middle of Baton Rouge that promotes locally grown foods. Your family will enjoy fresh morning omelets by the Louisiana Egg Commission, famous Bloody Mary samples by Mason's Grill and local food trucks.

Activities for kids include water slides, "Touch-a-Tractor" and hayrides. Don’t miss our education sessions to learn more about gardening, nature and environmental programs in the Conference Center to educate people of all ages. There will be vegetable trials and tastings, “Ask the Expert” plant and gardening tent, and a chance to meet amazing local plant and gardening clubs in Baton Rouge.

The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden is an expansive collection of specialty gardens, woodlands, wetlands, arboreta and university research facility. There is more to the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens than just green spaces. The facility plays an important role in the LSU AgCenter extension and research programs.

Admission is $5 per person and free for children ages 3 and under. Bring your swimsuits and prepare for a fun Saturday at the Botanic Gardens!

If you feel like escaping The Crossing Apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that! Trust us when we say that there’s no harm in getting out and exploring the greater community.
