Address: Ira Nelson Horticultural Center, 2206 Johnston St, Lafayette, LA. We will be in the building in the back on Creamery St. map.

Parking: Do not park in from of an old house across from the building. I attached a map of Ira Nelson. Do not park where you see red. You can park where the yellow lines are. I find it easy to go the rout you see in blue.
