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.

Check out our next class!

Join us on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:00 PM when our floral designer, and resident ribbon expert, Carrie, will be leading this fun, hands-on workshop! Learn how to create stunning holiday bows, and other creative crafts made from ribbon by making some of your very own to take home the night of the class. Price includes instruction and the cost of materials. Due to the nature of this workshop, registration is required. To register, CLICK HERE
