We're open to the public, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m until 5 p.m., unless there is a special event scheduled. We're a drop-off center for Toys For Tots; accepting new, unwrapped gifts. Do your holiday shopping in the peace of our Garden Shop, Tuesday - Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., where AHS members have a discount.
