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 August 17th at 7:00 PM for a fun, hands-on workshop where you will create your very own terrarium! Nothing livens up a room like a thriving ecosystem of beautiful plants conveniently contained in an elegant container. Learn all about how to compose and care for your terrarium by making one to take home with you. Admission is $30 and includes all materials. There is limited space for this class, so registration is required. To register, call now, or follow the link below.
