The Community Room

This hour and a half long Cactus and Succulent Potting workshop is designed to show participants how to select, design, and assemble a beautiful table-top cactus and succulent container garden. Program starts at 7pm and runs until 8:30pm.

Part One of the Program Introduction to the World of Cacti and Succulents, aka C&S. During this part of the program, attendees are introduced to the wonderful world of Cacti and Succulents, presented with some design considerations, and instructed on how to assemble their own container gardens, appropriately sized for tabletop or windowsill use.

Part Two of the Program A demonstration on how to actually assemble the C&S garden. In this segment, attendees will be shown step-by-step how to get the best, most pleasing results from their potting experience.

Part Three of the Program The actual design and construction of individual C&S table-top gardens. Each participant will receive everything they need to assemble a beautiful container garden, with the instructors available to answer questions, and help as needed with the planting.  At the end of the class, each participant will be bringing home their own tabletop garden, as well as printed instructions on proper cactus and succulent home care.

We will supply each attendee (limited to 20) with

  • an appropriate pot,
  • three, 2 inch plants of their own choosing,
  • pot screening,
  • plant specific soil and top dressing, and
  • printed  instructions on proper C&S care.
