Educational Series

It is our mission through the Garden Center Educational Series to engage and educate the community and help every gardener realize his or her full potential. Students learn vital information on seasonally specific subjects from both our own resident experts and traveling guest instructors. Classes are typically held on the third Thursday of the month at 7pm and cost $5, which includes the price of materials, instructions, and a $5 rebate on Garden Center merchandise the night of the class.



For hundreds of years, the Soergel family has been growing apples right here in our area. Now is your chance to tap into generations of experience and learn all about apples from the man himself, Randy Soergel! Whether you grow apples or just like eating them, Randy’s apple talks are always a crowd favorite. Best of all, you can try some samples, fresh picked off the trees! Admission is $5 and includes a $5 coupon to the Garden Center.
