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.
