There’s something going on from March through December here at WRF Nursery. Join us for one of our monthly garden themed craft nights. We also have a family-friendly fall festival complete with a pumpkin patch and challenging corn maze. Just before the season runs up, we have a Christmas Open House and the ever-popular Breakfast with Santa!

Find us on the corner of Indiana & Lafayette in downtown Valpo for fresh produce and plants grown just for you!
Little Sprout Club: Dinosaur Gardens

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED. Do you have a child aged 5 years old or under? Join us Wednesday July 10th at 1pm for story circle and craft time! We will be creating Dinosaur Chia Gardens to take home and watch grow!
Do you have a little sprout obsessed with fairies? We have an array of fairy garden accessories available for purchase if your child would like to make a fairy garden instead.
Registration is required so we can limit class size and gather supplies. Siblings are welcome to attend and participate! Please note this event is geared for young children.
Summer Safari Search-and-Find
July 11th- July 30th (Tentative)
The course will be open during normal business hours
FREE for all ages
Solve the riddles and search for stations hidden throughout the nursery in bloom! Those who collect all the stamps from each station will have their name added to our Hall of Fame board and will have a chance to win cool prizes such as tickets to our annual Fall Festival! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. For your safety, please stay out of restricted areas and away from farm equipment.

Annual Fall Festival
WRF Nursery & Garden Center will open their pumpkin fields to the public the first weekend in October during their Annual Fall Festival. Each all-inclusive wristband is good for a hayride, a pumpkin from Farmer Kory’s U-pick pumpkin patch, and entry into JJ’s legendary corn maze. Back at the nursery, this wristband also covers a number of activities such as face painting and kiddie crafts.
November 16, 2019 (Tentative)
Christmas Open House
Start the season off right. A handful of local crafters will be selling a wide array of handmade holiday gifts, accessories, and decor. You can also select from ready-made fresh evergreen wreaths and arrangements or place an order for a future pickup. Bring your flower pots or containers and they will stuff them full of mixed evergreen boughs, pine cones, premium ribbons, and decorative berries.
Breakfast With Santa
Santa is coming to WRF for a special all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Kids will have a jolly-good time creating a winter-themed craft to take home and there will be an activity table, story circle, and a very magical Christmas tree lighting ceremony in their miniature fairy village.
