A Garden of Verses Poetry Festival




11 am - 4 pm

California Botanic Garden welcomes you to our celebration of words amongst the wildflowers with the A Garden of Verses Poetry Festival. Kicking off both national Poetry Month and CalBG's Wildflower Month, guests are invited to walk the paths amongst spring blooms, stop at a food truck, and happen upon multiple poetry stations scattered throughout the Mesa gardens. All ages are welcome at this celebration of the power of poetry to capture the beauty of nature, with activity stations supplementing the poetry readings and allowing guests to create their own nature poems.

Garden of Verses features poetry stations hosted by:

Fourth Saturdays: Poetry at the Helen Renwick Library
