Classes & Events

We are passionate about education and enjoy giving opportunities for all to develop their growing skills. Our mission is to support the interests of gardeners and beekeepers at every level by providing meaningful knowledge and inspiring ideas. How we do this is by offering classes, most of which are free.

Classes are hosted in our on-site classroom at the Garden Center, and led by an expert staff member or field expert. Class fees may apply for guest speakers or for hands-on experiences, others are free.

We add new classes throughout the season, so be sure to check back for new learning opportunities.
