Miniatures Garden Workshop Coming Up

Come join the fun on August 8th, Thursday, from 6-8 pm to learn how to design, plant, and maintain a miniature garden. It is the next class offering on the Cathy T class series. And I’m excited our guest speaker, Rhonda (aka Rondi), of Gardening Inspirations will be our instructor.

I met Rondi several years ago when I took Master Gardening classes. She was our leader and coordinator. But she also has her own business now, specializing in miniatures. It started with inspiration she felt when she entered a shop in Florida filled from floor to ceiling with various type of miniatures. It clicked for her how fun and expressive these can be when making mini gardens. You can set a mini garden on your desk at work, then imagine it being an escape. There are several themes from beach to barn. The ideas and creativity are endless, and it is just plain fun to create. Just think party favor or center piece. Or how about creating one as a hostess gift?

Here’s the Class details:

Outdoor event. Aug 8th. (Rain date Aug 15th). 6 pm to 8 pm
Location: 72 Harrington Rd, Broad Brook, CT
