What to know

Linvilla Orchards shares a passion for the tasks that are accomplished here everyday.  We do what we love and we love what we do.  We want to share our love of gardening, building, growing and teaching with you!  All of our classes are always fun, informative and geared towards the whole family.  Join us as we share our knowledge in seasonal subjects such as Backyard Birding, Shade Gardening, Pesky Garden Pests, Lawn Maintenance and Management and Caring for Vegetable plants, herbs and fruit trees as well as hands-on classes like Build Your Own Terrarium and Gardening with Children.  Every month, we carefully put together a calendar of classes that we know you'll love!

Join us every Tuesday as Miss Marcia reads an entertaining story featuring gardens, farming, animals and nature! Children can also create a special craft each week! This class is geared more for preschoolers, but your entire family is welcome to join us.  We meet in the Garden Center, rain or shine.  There is never a fee!   Story time is at 10am.   Story time is cancelled until further notice.
