SCCF Garden Center to Re-Open Next Week

June 3, 2020

Beginning next Tuesday, June 9, the Bailey Homestead and the Native Landscapes & Garden Center will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10am to 3pm. 

We are asking all visitors to bring a face covering or mask to use when physical distancing cannot be achieved. The Bailey Homestead offers large outdoor spaces that can safely accommodate the distancing measures recommended by the CDC. All parties will need to be at least six feet apart.

Please wear a face covering or mask when interacting with our staff in the Garden Center. All staff will be outfitted in masks when interacting with guests, and will be taking extra sanitation measures in our restrooms and “high touch” areas within the Garden Center.

“We look forward to once again helping our customers make their yards a more sustainable and better habitat for wildlife!” said Garden Center Manager Jenny Evans. “Our goal is to be an educational resource for the community about native plants and sustainable gardening practices, and we’re excited to get back to recommending appropriate native plants and answering gardening questions.”

  • Starting next week, on-island deliveries will still be on Wednesdays and curbside pickups will change to Wednesdays, from 2 to 3pm.
  • We will take credit card payments only (no cash or checks please).
  • Simply place your order online before Tuesday evening at 11:59pm for pickup or delivery that Wednesday. 

Please email our Garden Center Assistant Sue Ramos at with any questions or requests.
