May Second Saturday: Fun With Flowers

Saturday, May 14, 2022, 10:00am - 12:00pm

Gamble Garden welcomes you to spend a beautiful May morning with us exploring the world of flowers – flowers as gifts and flowers as food! Second Saturdays are free and open to all.


Guided Tours and Nature Hunts

Come get your “nature eyes” working and join a guide as we explore throughout the garden. We’ll look for birds and pollinators, dig for worms and critters in the soil, and discover the wonderful world of flowers.

Flowers Arranging Workshop for Children

The Garden Club of Palo Alto will once again sponsor a Children’s Flower Arranging Workshop at Gamble Garden. The last workshop in 2019 was a smashing success! Each child will be given a small vase to fill with flowers which they can take home. The range of arranging techniques displayed by the children is always quite amazing and fun to see.

Edible Flowers Exploration

Gorgeous pansies, vibrant violas, romantic roses, aromatic herb flowers, savory veggie flowers, and native plants so important to the land’s earliest inhabitants – you’ll be amazed at how many flowers in our garden are actually edible. Come find them with us, and even taste a few.

Visit Elizabeth’s House

Walk through Elizabeth’s house, built in 1902, and get a look into the early days of Palo Alto. Our docents will be on hand to answer questions and share stories of old. *Gamble Garden follows Santa Clara County Public Health Department COVID-19 requirements and guidelines. Masks are strongly recommended indoors but are not required. *

Ballet Dancers In The Garden

Student dancers from Bayer Ballet will perform excerpts of the classical ballet, The Rose and the Butterfly, throughout the morning.
