Following the Seasons

Designed for families of all shapes and sizes, these two-day sessions bring your family together to explore the beautiful garden setting and connect to nature, each other and oneself. Each seasonally inspired pair of classes starts with a guided walk through The Gardens followed by a workshop-style project that you will finish together and take home on day two.

New lessons and activities each season!

Families in Summer: Summer is a time for play and imagination in The Gardens. Play relieves stress, creates bonding moments and fosters joy. Connect with your joyful inner child to explore the secrets of the fairies and elves that live at The Gardens. Then, as a family, you will create your own fairy family, design a fairy home and even create a miniature fairy or elf garden to take home! During the first class we will build a fairy home in the landscape and during the second class we will will create a fairy or elf garden to take home.

All materials are included in the class. Classes are limited to three to four families and no more than 15 people total. 

Big family? Projects will best be enjoyed by family units of five or less. If your family is larger please register in groups of four to five. Each group will get a planter to work on. 

Each session is a two-day experience – please choose a pair of classes.

Saturday | 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
