THIS CLASS IS FULL.  An overflow session has been opened on Wednesday, December 15 (link below).

Join us to create a unique holiday wreath. Use common evergreens to create a base wreath on a straw form, then add accent greens cut from the Garden’s collections and various decorations. Work outdoors in a safely distanced setting to complete your wreath. We’ll have heaters and light seasonal snacks to keep you warm and fueled as you work.

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are required for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. Non-vaccinated participants are also required to wear masks when outdoors and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distancing. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.
