Going Bananas for APPLES! – November 11. 2023.  There’s nothing more “a-peeling” than spending time at Shangri La Gardens to get the “in-cider” information on all things apples. During this family-friendly program, we will conduct experiments, make observations and do artwork using all things apples. You won’t “pick” a better day to have some “hard-core” fun this fall!
