Winter Workshop

David Pippin shows you how to liven up the short, cold days of winter by going “wild and crazy” with branches and foliage from the winter garden and some bright tropicals to add a welcome dash of warmth. Enjoy this class as a warm up for the March 21 webinar on Hawaiian cuisine with chef Sheldon Simeon. Also plan to come to the Garden Cafe for a tropical-themed lunch special in March!

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19.
