Modesto Children’s Garden Event Spaces: Sweet Retreats

Imagine enjoying a balmy California night with friends and family under a beautifully illuminated arbor just steps away from where some of the food you’re sharing was grown. Or picture guests delighted by the cozy environment of a quaint greenhouse.

The great news is that you don’t have to imagine it! The Hive is a graceful arched covering decorated with lights and greenery that creates the perfect environment for a reception, party, meeting, or any gathering of up to 80 people.

For smaller groups, Honey House is a beautiful greenhouse where we host wedding showers, baby showers, children’s birthday parties, club meetings, and other events.

And choosing us to host your event helps your community at the same time! Funds from renting our event space support programs that encourage kids to be active, informed, and eager to fuel their bodies with foods that help them lead healthy, happy, energized lives.

From skies to soil


We’re pleased to say that with your support, our efforts over more than a decade to draw attention to Valley Children’s Hospital have helped raise awareness of their services and the amazing work they do. And now, the Pelandale Specialty Care Center is providing even easier access to health services in our area.

But our work’s not done!

We’ve shifted our focus to another critical children’s issue: the unrelenting epidemic of childhood obesity. Learn about the many ways Modesto Children’s Garden [link] is helping address it—through our children’s programs, Farmers Market, beautiful event spaces and more.
