June 12 : Fairy Garden Class

6:00PM

Fee : $30

Fairy Gardening takes the concept of gardening and makes it miniature. Fairy Gardens may contain tiny furniture, stones, gardening tools, and living plants. The goal of creating such a space is to attract these whimsical creatures to your garden. Most fairy gardens are intermingled among regular sized gardens or in shallow pots or containers, however, they can be built indoors as well. The class is guided by the Casey's staff. Your fee includes a container (or you can bring/purchase your own) to plant in, 3 plants, a fairy or animal, soil, pea gravel, sand, wood chips, colored rocks and moss.
