The price for these workshops is $8 Members | $13 Non-Members plus $8 per gingerbread house (minimum of one per group). Make your own gingerbread house, with a twist – no baking or sugar needed!

December 9, 2018, join professional floral designers to create your own fresh holiday wreath, using evergreens, fresh flowers, succulents and other botanical elements. Space is limited and advanced registration required. Please call Visitor Services at (424) 452-0920 Ext. 3.
December 15, 2018 through March 31, 2018 – the Incredible Journey and the Lost Secret of the South Coast Botanic Gardens will take place with Membership or General Admission. You can grab your satchel and compass and prepare for adventure as you search the Garden for hidden treasure and treasures hidden in plain sight. But be careful, even the most seasoned explorers will have difficulty getting past the sticky trees, dangling vines, carnivorous plants, and hidden eyes watching quietly from the trees. Reference your tattered treasure map to unlock the secrets of the Garden and find your way to the hidden lair. This adventure is recommended for guests of all ages. The self-guided activity will include an adventurous hike through the Garden; be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes, snacks, water, shade hats, sunscreen and possibly a picnic to enjoy along the way. Strollers for your littlest adventurers is encouraged.
