Monthly Garden Walk & Educational Workshop

August 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come explore the Hope Grows property, walk through our 11 healing gardens, and enjoy different educational workshops and children’s activities each month!

Our Adult Backyard Basics Educational Series is all about the fundamentals of growing, harvesting, and beautifying your backyard. At Hope Grows, we believe that having a strong understanding of the “basics” before diving in headfirst is of the utmost importance in making sure you’re ready to start a new backyard hobby! Consider joining us for one or all of our adult classes this growing season.

FOR AUGUST 15: Beekeeping Basics
Ever thought about being a backyard beekeeper? Join us in learning the fundamentals of keeping these wonderful pollinators and what is needed to begin this hobby. We’ll briefly discuss honeybee hive setup and maintenance, with an observational hive on display and, of course, honey tastings! Participants are encouraged to bring a local honey and share where it is from. REGISTER ONLINE.

Workshops are $15 per person and limited to 12 participants. Registration is required!
All classes are 6:30-7:30pm in the Education Pavilion at the Iris Respite House B&B and Healing Gardens, located at 183 Shafer Road in Moon Township.

Garden walks and children’s activities are free and open to the public from 6-8pm.

Paint two river rocks to look like bees! Jess will send you home with two, so you can “Make 2 & Give 1” to an important caring person in your life. You’ll also learn about the important role of honeybees as pollinators and get the opportunity to try on a children’s bee suit (adult sizes as well for the child at heart!). Definitely a fun photo op!
