Classes & Workshops
TBD. Succulent Planter: Year after year we see succulents gaining in popularity. These plants are easy to care for and a lot of fun to decorate with. In this workshop you will mix and match succulents to create a stunning centerpiece that can be kept in your home or placed out on the deck. I personally love to put succulents near the entry of our home. $35 per planter. Payment due at registration
TBD. Miniature/Fairy Garden: Learn a bit of background information on the art of gardening in miniature. Take a look at a few of the fairy gardens that we have put together for our resident fairy. Then, stick around and build a mini garden of your own. This is a lot more fun than you would imagine, for adults and children alike. $45 fee per kit, includes a container, a few small plants, some accessories and all the soil, pebbles and mosses you need. Additional products are available for purchase. This project requires that we have plenty of supplies on hand the day of the class so we ask that you try your best to pre-register. Payment due at registration.
