Garden Lifestyle Workshops & Classes

There’s always something to learn Wingard’s!

You can Make a Fairy Gardenfairy garden

Sunday, May 7th, 2:00 p.m.

Come create your own miniature garden! Be inspired to dream and create miniature landscapes using small-scale plants and accessories. These little scenes create a sense of magic and whimsy and are essential for attracting those little elusive fairies to your home and garden. Fairy gardens are becoming increasingly popular in the home garden.

It’s one enchanted Sunday afternoon when you tap your creativity to create a home for your very own fairies. This is a fun way to spend some time with a child or grandchild…but many adults enjoy fairy gardening for themselves…no child required.

Registration is $10 per person, in advance, and you will receive a $10 credit toward your fairy garden purchases that day. Space is limited, so please register early. All ages are welcome to attend; children must be accompanied by an adult.
