Photography session FAQ
Do you have questions about our rules? view the FAQ here: Photography Session FAQ
General: Please remember that Peckerwood Garden Conservation Foundation will remain open to the public during some or all of most events. We will endeavor to see that our visitors do not interfere with your activities and ask you to reciprocate. When you make a reservation, you are guaranteed exclusive use of only the reserved space and only during the bloc of rental time. Common areas, parking, bathrooms, nursery and sidewalks outside are not part of our rentals and should remain free of congestion, decorations and other set-up materials; if you wish to utilize another space for this or other purposes, it must be included in your rental agreement.
All restrictions that apply to gardens visitors also apply to individuals utilizing rental space. For instance, smoking is not allowed in the garden, in buildings, or near buildings. Running or shouting in the Garden House is prohibited and music (and other noise sources) must be kept to a level that does not disturb visitors or staff. Children must always be under adult supervision with at least one adult accompanying every five children.
Peckerwood Garden Conservation Foundation is not responsible for “acts of God,” such as inclement weather, tree falls etc.—that could potentially impact rental activities. Outdoor rentals are “fair weather” affairs; it is the responsibility of the renting party to make any alternate arrangements (which may include space reservation in the Garden House) in the event of inclement weather. A non-refundable and non-transferable rental deposit of $75 is required to reserve the site of your choice, with the balance due one month before the event.
Requested arrangement of chairs and, if applicable, tables are needed no later than one week before the event.
A Refundable damage deposit is collected of $250.
