Pumpkin Succulent Decorating Workshop

Join us outdoors at the Gardening Education Center for our first holiday class of the year.  Get ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving and learn how to make beautiful succulent centerpieces with pumpkins. We will provide pumpkins, moss, succulents, plant material and all the tools you need. Using basic centerpiece design principles, you will learn how to arrange and display your unique creation. Participants will leave with a beautiful piece of living art to wow guests, family, and friends.

We will also discuss the basic principles of succulent care and propagation so that, once the fall holiday season is over, you can transplant your succulents into a container or directly into your garden and keep them healthy and beautiful for years to come.
