Ongoing Classes

Third Thursday Series
Join us the third Thursday of each month for our new floral arranging series. Each month, you'll learn a different technique to turn your backyard blooms (or cut flowers from the store) into tabletop masterpieces.

Faerie Discovery Tour
Join us on the fourth Saturday of every month on a trek of the Margaret Annis Boys Arboretum as we venture out in search of faeries. Along the way, learn about trees and plants that would grow well in your own garden. FREE for all ages. Advanced registration required.

Faerie Gardening
Discover the world of miniature the fourth Saturday of every month as you plant a sprite-sized garden to attract faeries into your life (legend has it they bring good luck). A pot, starter soil, plants and an accessory are supplied, but participants are welcome to bring trinkets to personalize your garden. No experience required. For all ages, but a parent or guardian must accompany children under 10. Advanced registration required. $25 per garden.
