Rare and eco-friendly, organic tulips make up only 25 acres out of the 25,000 acres in Holland devoted to growing the flower that powers their nation. The sustainable variety is able to soak up more nutrients, making them stronger and less likely to catch disease or become pest infested. As one of the only American sources for the coveted vase filler, EcoTulips provides tulips grown in organic soil that is only used once every seven years. This year marks the first annual event celebrating the beloved bloom, with 40,000 planted to create a 10,000-square-foot pick-your-own garden experience. Stop by from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays without an appointment, or call ahead to schedule a picking time on weekdays. EcoTulips also recommends that you call ahead to ensure that the tulips are in full bloom before you embark on your gardening experience.
