This class is FULL.

hypertufa pot

Let’s put on some gloves and get our hands dirty! Hypertufa pots are fun and easy to make creating unique containers for your home garden. These containers are composed of Portland cement, perlite, peat moss, and water which looks like concrete but is very lightweight. The best way to learn is hands-on! In this class, you’ll be making a flower pot(s) to take home learning the step-by-step process of making hypertufa pots. This hobby is addictive, so once you start, you won’t want to stop! You’ll take home directions, care instructions, and creative ideas to further your garden experience. Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today! Additional Information: This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden in an indoor space. Please come prepared to get messy! Wear old clothes, avoid wearing jewelry, and bring heavy-duty dishwashing gloves.

Members: $60
Non-Members: $110
