Classes & Events

Classes are scheduled throughout the year ranging from garden growing and care to craft classes during the  holidays. Check back often, or call us and we’ll be happy to let you know what’s coming up.

Unless otherwise stated, all classes are free. Please RSVP to (970) 565-8274 to reserve your spot when indicated. Classes and workshops that are “make and take” generally fill quickly and we have to order supplies in order to make sure we have enough materials for everyone, so it’s important that you register for those classes.

If there’s something you’d like to see us add to our list, please let us know that as well and we’ll be happy to see what we can do. Our best ideas sometimes come from our customers. We are also happy to accommodate special group requests. Be a lifelong learner! Call us today to schedule your group or club.
