If you, or your garden club, church group or organization is interested in any sort of workshop, please contact us! We are happy to host them for you.

Workshops on Hold…

Due to the lack of interest in Workshops, at least for the month of July, we are going to hold off pre-scheduling any for now.  If you have a group of friends (at least 5 people) willing to attend the same workshop, we will be happy to schedule one for you! We think the lack of interest at the moment is due to summertime activities, so don’t worry! We hope to get some scheduled again later in the summer and early fall.

Celebrating a birthday, important milestone, or just want to have your own private get together with your friends? Schedule a garden tour, workshop or lunch with us! Just let us know at least two weeks in advance and we will try to work something out for you. You can contact us at 440-729-1374 and ask for Kathy.

Tufa Planter Workshop Saturday, May 25th 2013

TufaJoin us for our Tufa planter workshop! Tufa is a type of lightweight cement that can be molded into garden vessels that look like limestone. Tufa is porous and is beneficial for plant growth, so it is a wonderful plant container. In this workshop, you will create at least 2 planters for your outside garden using baskets or plastic containers as molds. Planters are lighter than clay or concrete and can withstand harsh winters. Please feel free to register with a friend! Class taught by: Joan Rusek

Registration Fee: $45.00

What you make: 2 Tufa Planters

Who can join us: Adults are welcome to register with a friend or a child that is 12 years or older

Workshop Time: 2:00pm to 5:00pm;  Approximately 3 Hours

Class Size Limit: 10 Registrants (including friends) – Will notify if class is full

What you need to bring/be aware of:

  • Wear old clothes and shoes, you will be working with CEMENT
  • You may bring your own container to “form” the planter, we recommend a plastic container, please don’t bring anything that you couldn’t afford to lose as the cement may damage it
  • Rubber or Vinyl gloves – we will try to have some available, but if you have them, please bring them.
  • The materials have some weight to them – if you have trouble lifting heavy objects, we recommend bringing a friend who can help you!
