Monthly Garden Walk & Educational Workshop

October 17 @ 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 OCTOBER 17: Worm Composting Basics
Join us for an open discussion regarding the different types of composting. Our focus will be on worm composting and why October is a great time of year to start a worm composter! We’ll provide a brief educational rundown of how each method of composting works, the benefits, and how to use compost. Participants will have the opportunity to order a small worm composter to assemble, take home, and create great compost for the new growing season. 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.

Make a special fairy wand from beautiful dried allium flower stalks that grow in the spring and early summer. Learn about the allium plants, decorate a pumpkin, and find out how long it takes for different items to decompose.
