Fresh Produce Stand and Farmer’s Market Tour

*Due to the COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, property tours are currently suspended. Please check back for further updates.

Produce Stand:

Are you looking for fresh produce grown here in National City? Olivewood Gardens grows seasonal produce that is used throughout our programs and in our community.  Additionally, most Thursdays at 10am, Olivewood hosts a produce stand with a variety of freshly harvested fruits and veggies. This is a donation-based produce stand where you pay what you can. The produce stand is open until supply runs out.

Property Tour:

Also at 10am on Thursdays, you can find a friendly, knowledgeable docent leading a free tour around our gardens. You’ll learn about the history of the property, Olivewood programming, and more! This tour takes place on natural surfaces such as dirt and mulch so please wear appropriate shoes.

If you have special accommodation requests or would like to reserve a private tour at a small fee, please contact
