Family Workshop: A Fairy House & Garden in a Basket


Thursday, APRIL 21, 10 a.m. - Noon (during April Vacation Week!)

Are there fairies at the bottom of your garden? Possibly, but even if there aren’t, it’s great fun to pretend! Build a house and little garden that just might entice the fairies to come and play. Using bark, leaves, twigs and other natural materials, we’ll create a charming little home that any fairy would be pleased to move into. Once the house is built the landscaping can begin: lay out paths, design a garden or install a small pond. The construction site is a basket that is easily carried home.

$35 per basket, Members; $45 per basket, Non-members
Be sure to bring an apron, garden scissors and your imagination to class.

  • Mid-summer shift (Jul 11, '14)
    The gardens are going through a bittersweet transition from June’s hurrah to a mid-summer huzzah, and although we sometimes experience a “July gap,” the shift seems pretty seamless this year. Delicate oxeye daisies gave way almost overnight to beefy Shastas, echinaceas, and rudbeckias. Sturdy summer phlox are taking over, as we speak, for the elegance […]
