Open Now to the Public – Wear a Mask

Effective Monday May 18th we will be open to the public during our usual hours:  9:30 am – 2:30 pm M-F.

All visitors to the Garden Center must wear masks and sign-in when they enter our facility

For your convenience and safety, we will have disinfecting wipes available in community areas throughout the Garden Center.

Our public gardens will be open by appointment.  The gates will be locked and access will be controlled by our office manager. Please call ahead to schedule a time to visit the gardens.  If you are in the gardens, please maintain a distance of six feet or more from other visitors.

Our garden shop will be open during our usual hours.  We will only allow 5 people in the shop at a time.  We have seating in the hallway, should you need to wait.

Our clubs and societies will be resuming their meetings and events, subject to the Governor’s orders on gathering size limitations and distancing requirements.  While we require them to ensure that their members wear masks and maintain social distancing, it will be up to them to make the decisions on what events they hold, subject to the Governor’s orders.  Please check their websites and FB pages for details on their plans.

Our facilities will be open for rentals subject to the Governor’s orders.  Please contact our office for details and availability.

We will be updating our guidance as the Governor’s orders evolve.

Thank you for supporting our organization.

We encourage you to keep up-to-date by following NMDOHCDC, and WHO guidance.
