The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina is a non-profit company dedicated to improving lives, cultivating inspiration, offering a variety of experiences, creating jobs, and generating income for the community.
The public is invited to join us on October 22nd, 2022 at the Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina for our first annual Fall Festival! Doors open at 10:00 AM and cost of admission is FREE! The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina is located at 985 Johnson Nursery Road in Willard, NC.
Bring the whole family and experience the excitement of taking a covered wagon ride to a real pumpkin patch, where you can pick your own pumpkin straight off the vine. Big, small, bumpy, smooth, white, orange, green or blue - we're growing a pumpkin or gourd that everyone will love! Several selfie stations will be placed throughout The Gardens where you can take fun fall photos.
Children will love painting their pumpkins, playing in the bubble garden, face painting, make-and-take crafts and more. Shop the vast offering of mums, flowers, shrubs, trees and garden decor at the Garden Center at Johnson Nursery and peruse dozens of locally-owned businesses from candle makers, home decor, wreaths and flower arrangements, knitted animals and more.
Walk the beautiful grounds at the Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina and use our QR codes with your smartphone to learn more about a plant in the landscape. Head over to the Event Tent to grab a cold beer or glass of wine at our fully stocked cash bar and appease your stomach with fresh made-to-order pizza from the Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina's brick-fired oven. Several food and beverage trucks will be onsite to satisfy your cravings. The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina is located at Johnson Nursery in beautiful Willard, NC. We believe there is great value in showcasing new introductions along with well-known plants resulting in acres of beautiful display gardens. Added to this excitement is the gift of a native hardwood forest, culminating in almost 300 acres of property allowing us to dream even bigger, bringing events and specialty gardens to the public. The Fall Festival at The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina is sure to become a family tradition for many years to come.
