Succulent Planter Workshop

Saturday, April 6
Saturday, April 13

Carson Family Education Center at the Zoo (Complimentary parking in the Anthony Wayne Trail lot.)

$50 for members / $55 for non-members

It’s time for another round of botany and bubbly at our Take-home Succulent Planter Workshop! Succulents are a low maintenance plants that store water in their leaves… meaning less remembering to water them. Succulent planters make beautiful centerpieces, brighten window sills during the dull winter months and can then be moved to grace the patio in the summer. Our horticulture staff will provide all the materials (plants, soil, decorative items, etc.) and guidance needed to create a professional yet personalized planter. To fuel your creativity, a light brunch of pastries, mimosas, coffee and more will be served! No experience is necessary, just bring your friends and imagination and leave with your own easy-to-care-for succulent planter! This event is kid-friendly and open to ages 8 and up.

Duration 10:00 a.m. - Noon
