Hyannis Country Garden virtual events are designed to be both informative and entertaining.

Our fans love our Friday Happy Hours, each starting at 5 PM and lasting for one hour. All Happy Hours are free of charge and you can participate in these either on Facebook Live or by clicking the individual link and registering via Zoom. Note: soon the Zoom registration for our Happy Hours will be limited to the first 100 people. We ask that you only register if you intend to be on the Zoom call - if you're in doubt, join in on our Facebook page instead, so that someone else who is sure to attend can be included.  Sunday Seminars are in-depth classes on topics that we’ve seen are of interest to our customers. These virtual events run from 4 PM to 5:30, and the non-refundable cost to attend is $10.00. Our Sunday Seminar one-and-a-half hour programs do a deeper dive into subjects of interest to Cape Cod gardeners. Advance payment and registration is required, and all who are signed up will receive a pdf handout on the topic. Registration for all Sunday Seminar events is $10.00 and is non-refundable. Please Note: Sunday Seminar webinars are not recorded...like our in-store educational programs, they are 'you have to be there' events. There are no refunds for those who don't attend, but all paid registrants will receive the handout.
