Childrens Holiday Events at Garden Supply Co.

The holidays are here, and at Garden Supply Co. we are ready to celebrate this wonderful time of year with some special events just for children. We've set aside the month of December and filled our schedule with our very favorite kids events like Breakfast with Mrs. Claus and pony rides with Ginger and Snap. So pull out those datebooks and mark your calendars for these special dates.

Breakfast with Mrs. Claus

December 1st, 8th, and 15th at 9 am

Join us for a continental fare breakfast at 9 am, immediately followed by a special story-time with Mrs. Claus herself. Be sure to bring your cameras to capture those once-in-a-lifetime moments and any letters to Santa that your kids would like to pass along.

Breakfast with Mrs. Claus Registration

Breakfast with Mrs. Claus is a free event, however registration in-person at the store is required. This year, we are asking for book donations to the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children's books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals.

All new or gently used books for ages one through mid-teen are welcome. The need is great for English and Spanish-language board books, the sturdy picture books that can withstand repeated use by the very young.

Please bring in your donations by December 1st and register in-person at the store. We will not be accepting phone reservations at this time, as they need to have the books in hand for distribution by the 9th.

One book per child, per event

Pony Rides

December 8th and 15th from 11 am- 3 pm

This year, we are thrilled to welcome back our very favorite Garden Supply Co. ponies, Ginger and Snap. They will be visiting with us two afternoons in December, offering rides through the garden center.

Pony Ride Registration

Registration is free, however tickets are required for pony rides. To obtain pony ride tickets, we are asking for book donations to the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children's books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals.

Please see above Breakfast with Mrs. Claus registration information for full details.

Book donations and ticket registration must be made in person by December 1st, as the Book Fairy needs all donations for distribution on the 9th.

Thanks so much, and we look forward to celebrating the holidays with you and your children at Garden Supply Co!
