Since its grand opening in July 2022, weekly events such as trivia nights, live music, and yoga are loved among garden goers.

“One of my partners (Jeff Kolb) told me a long time ago when he was building 9 Mile Garden (in Affton) for Larry Chapman that we have to do one of these in St. Charles County.
