Next time you visit the garden, do not forget to check out the Information Center and Marge’s Gift Shoppe in the portable unit near the entrance. Informational brochures including a map of the garden are available, as well as references for plant selection.
We also have free “scavenger hunt” pages for young children requiring them to place stickers next to the photo or written words of items seen as they explore the garden. The children love this activity that promotes keen observation skills and an appreciation of nature! As a reward, the children can select a sticker or tattoo from a basket with many options.
The Gift Shoppe offers a wide variety of garden-related items. Outside you will find a display of plants, pots, wind chimes, decorative plant stakes, painted rocks, and garden décor. Inside you can purchase a cold beverage and light snack to enjoy as you stroll through the garden, as well as garden books, seeds from the garden blooms, Clovis Botanical Garden souvenirs, plant stakes, lavender sachets, painted rocks, air plants, local honey, metal garden art, seasonable items and much more. New items arrive weekly!

We love to welcome visitors, so stop by to say “hello!”
