Experience Fairy Gardens and Fig Cultivation at Roger Williams Park Botanical Garden

Discover the enchanting blend of horticulture and magic in two spring garden events


The Roger Williams Park Botanical Center gets ready for spring with two events that seamlessly combine horticulture with enchantment, inviting attendees to explore the captivating world of gardening. Register early for can’t-miss programming!

Fig Propagation Workshop

On March 23, Sandy Pavao-Pinarreta, also known as Fig Mamma, will be hosting an educational Fig Propagation Workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about pruning, starting cuttings, and caring for fig trees using cuttings from the center's own fig tree. This workshop provides a unique chance to take home a piece of the center's history and cultivate your very own fig tree. Tickets are available for purchase online, but availability is limited.

Fairy Garden Days

With a theme of "The Year of the Dragon" for 2024, Fairy Garden Days will take place April 13-28. This family-friendly event transforms the greenhouses into enchanting miniature worlds. Visitors can explore intricately crafted houses and villages made by community members, where fairies, gnomes, and dragons come to life amid the tropical plants. Local artists, including painter Mike Bryce and fairy home designer Cat Riker, will showcase their work. Craft workshops, special performances, and activities for children are also available.
