This fun workshop involves repurposing recycled products to create an exciting and artistic mini Xeric Garden. You can conveniently hang your fancy funnel panel on a wall just outside your kitchen door for harvesting herbs or as a stand-alone, “ooh and awe” garden decoration! You’ll learn new skills as we will be using an electric drill and acrylic paint. Please wear covered shoes, bring an apron, safety goggles, Phillips screw driver and your “I can do anything” persona! Container gardens tend to dry out quickly and require frequent watering except for when you fill them with drought tolerant plants. Your new plantings will require frequent watering at first, but once established you will only have to water one to two times per week! Another water saving tip brought to you by BWS and FOHXG.     


Advanced registration is required. Registration opens on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, and closes at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 2, 2018, or when all spaces are filled. Call (808) 748-5315 or email to register.
