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.



This class is for the birds! Join us on Thursday, Nov 21 as a guest speaker from Aspen Wild Bird Food visits to discuss the ins and outs of bird feeding in our area, including a special presentation on humming bird feeders, and a humming bird mix that is guaranteed to bring humming birds to your garden! Whether you are an experienced or beginner bird feeder, you are sure to find this class fun and informative. The $5 admission includes a $5 coupon to the Garden Center.
