Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens

Spring About

with one comment


My dad farms just south of The Arboretum.  He’s a fourth-generation farmer, so I actually come from a long line of ‘growing things.’  The desire to be working the land is in our blood and each spring, we’re anxious to get started.  About the first week in April we start smelling the air, waiting for that fresh spring smell.


Spring is finally here, and you can definitely smell it in the air today.  I hope you’re able to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather!



While the gardens still look a bit rough, there are posies to see at The Arboretum.  I hope you’ll stop out and take a look around.  In fact, the perfect excuse to enjoy The Arboretum is to attend tomorrow’s Spring Session at 10:00 a.m. in the Head House.   The Spring Sessions have been organized as an opportunity to learn more about garden volunteer opportunities at The Arboretum – click on the ‘2009 Spring Sessions’ tab on the right for more information.


If you cannot attend a Spring Session tomorrow, there are also sessions held on April 21, 23, 25 and 30.  I hope you’ll plan on attending.


See you in the gardens.

  1. Thank you, Mollie, for the good start to the season. Look forward to meeting lots of new
    volunteers and learning about horticulture during
    “crew” time!
