December 11, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
‘Tis the season for holiday wreaths! A fresh evergreen wreath in your home adds the perfect festive touch, and by knowing what to grow in your own home landscape, your decoration will be both festive AND convenient. In this hands-on class, your instructor, Rebecca Turk, will cover key trees and shrubs to grow as well as how to make an 18” wreath using those plants.
Each class attendee will make their own 18” wreath from materials harvested from the Garden. Once completed, your beautiful creation will go home with you to decorate your home for the holidays!
Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today!
