Join us on Saturday, February 14th from 10 am-11 am for our free class on how to start seeds indoors. This is the perfect time to get your seeds going indoors to give your garden a head start so you will be able to see the fruits of your labor more quickly. Flowers can spend more time blooming and fruit or vegetable plants can spend more time yielding crops rather than trying to reach maturity. Seeds are fairly inexpensive and it’s easy to get them established now so that when the weather warms up, your garden doesn’t miss a beat! Our class will help you learn about the best products, the process of seed starting, and how and when to transplant the seeds to your garden.

Looking for a fun project? Maybe something a little different? Then come to our Terrarium Workshop and make your very own adorable indoor garden! On Thursday, January 29th from 6 to 7 pm, we’ll be leading the group in a hands-on workshop to learn the very cool art of making a terrarium. The cost is $20, which includes the stones, soil, activated charcoal, and moss. (Additional plants or add-ons will be extra.)
Terrariums are an eye-catching way to instantly perk up a space. They look like their own little world which makes you take a closer look. They’re easy to make and can be made with a wide array of plant choices, so they can be as easy to care for as you want. Terrariums complement any décor and give an indoor area a fresh oxygen boost. They can also make great gifts and my favorite thing about terrariums is that my cats can’t get to the plants!
Attend our Terrarium Workshop for a much-needed break from the winter weather!
