2021 Reservation Policies
Reservations and Availability:
All scheduled events at Southern Exposure (workshops and specialty dining events) must be paid for at the time of registration. We have responded to your requests and expanded our schedule to offer many new choices along with your favorites. Our scheduled events are offered on a first come, first-served basis. To secure your space at an upcoming event or events, please make your reservation(s) in advance. Most workshops are approximately two hours in length and are held at Southern Exposure Herb Farm. Specialty dining events usually run somewhat longer.
* Please note that you must be at least 21 years of age to register for event SE-14 and SE-22 during our Spring 2021 season. For further details on upcoming events, please read the latest descriptions for the current season on our Workshops & Specialty Dining page.
Customer Refund Policy for Workshops and Specialty Dining Events:
A refund (less $20 processing fee, unless transferred to another scheduled event with openings in the current season) is given if you cancel by writing, calling, or e-mailing Southern Exposure at least 96 hours prior to the date of the event. If a cancellation is received less than 96 hours prior, for any reason, there will be no refund. You may also send another guest in your place if you cannot attend.
***If a scheduled event must be cancelled or rescheduled because of circumstances outside of the control of Southern Exposure, a refund is given either by gift card, which can be used towards future scheduled events for up to 5 years, OR registration is transferred to another scheduled event with openings in the current season.***
The above policy applies to all workshops and specialty dining events.
Event Cancellation Policy:
Please register two weeks in advance to prevent cancellation of a workshop or specialty dining event due to insufficient enrollment. If Southern Exposure cancels a workshop, registrants will be notified and full refunds will be issued.
By making a reservation with Southern Exposure, either online, via phone or in person, you agree to the terms and conditions of our Spring 2021 Reservations Policy, Customer Refund Policy, and Event Cancellation Policy above. For more information, please call our office (269) 962-1255 during our normal business hours. Thank You!
