Farmington Hills offers Garden Tea Party kits

The Farmington Hills Nature Center is offering a special “take-home” version of its annual Garden Tea Party, with kits available at the Nature Center on Friday, August 14, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

The Tea Party is among a number of larger Department of Special Services events that have been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

The kit has everything you need for a fun tea party and garden celebration, including garden herbs, a mug, and easy recipes complete with tea supplies, plus nature activity materials and a link to a garden video from the City’s naturalist. Fraser Tea of Livonia donated tins of loose leaf tea for the kits.

Limited, in-person Children’s Garden tours may also be available during the pickup time, depending on the number of participants. For the safety of volunteers, wear a mask when you pick up your Garden Tea Party Kit or tour the Children’s Garden.

It’s recommended that you purchase a $5 kit for each member of your group. Supplies are available to pre-registered participants only.
