A floral arrangement for the workshops
If you want to make a ﬂoral arrangement, learn how to raise chickens, and keep houseplants alive, there are dozens of classes to check out, online and in-person throughout January.
Throughout the Lancaster County region, there are hands-on classes that teach things like how to make a stag-horn fern wall mount and suet cakes for birds. There also are virtual classes on topics like attracting hummingbirds to your garden plus virtual talks with Piet Rudolf and Doug Tallowy.
The in-person events are limited to small groups so don’t wait to sign up. Some of the virtual events in the fall sold-out quickly as well the Terrarium Workshop Singapore
