Gardening Workshop: Garden Art for Kids

Garden Art for Kids

Presenters: Suzanne Boag, Ginny Smith, Lynn Hoffmann

Sunday, April 30, 2 to 4 p.m.

This class will be for children ages 5 to 12. The class will have three creative crafts that can be placed in the garden.  The Toad House, Flower Sun-Catcher and Fence Board planters will be items that children will make with the help of an adult.  Children will be taught how good frogs and toads are in the garden as well as how to use flowers to make ornaments that can be hung around the garden or from a bedroom window.  Children will also be able to paint and decorate a planter for the yard.  The planters will be filled with sun loving plants that will easily grow in the garden. Children must be accompanied by an adult.  The fee for this class will be $25 for an adult/child pair; bring a friend or sibling and they can attend for additional $10!

Registration fee is $25 (includes 1 child and 1 adult).

Deadline to register has closed but if you are interested in attending please call 540-869-2028.



The Barn Series of Gardening Lectures & Workshops for the Shenandoah Valley Gardener

Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners and Belle Grove Plantation have teamed up to host a series of monthly lectures & workshops from April to October 2017.  The lecture topics will focus on home gardening and using what can be grown at home. The knowledgeable instructors are members of the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association (NSVMGA).  Each monthly session will include a lecture followed by a workshop where students will put to use some new found ideas.  Attendees will go home with creations that range from garden art, starter gardens, samples of herb and tomato dips, lavender craft, and Williamsburg style holiday decorations.  Most class fees will be $25, though some classes will have an additional $5 fee to cover the cost of materials for the workshops. Sign up for any four classes and attend the other classes at no additional charge, except for application supply fees.
