The garden is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Those wishing to schedule student tours or workshops should do so three weeks in advance. The garden was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1990. The location is popular among the locals for weddings, professional photos shoots and private events.
