The Arbor Gate’s frequent and wide-ranging classes, workshops, and special events provide enriching information and experiences throughout the gardening year. Our participants gain not only knowledge, but also inspiration and the incentive to get gardening! get cooking! get landscaping! get building that compost heap! get welding! and the list goes on!

Presenters range from published authors to local experts, some Arbor Gate favorites and others brand new to our audiences. Numerous authors of the books we stock are popular class and workshop presenters.

During the fall season until early December, and beginning again in the new year, a full and descriptive schedule, including speakers’ credentials and specific topics, are posted on the website at arborgate.com. Website sign-up makes it easy and convenient to get involved.

Whether your interest is horticultural, culinary, or artistic, there’s a class (or two or three) for you! So sign up, mark your calendars, and be ready to be energized and renewed.

MGCEU: Classes marked with an “MGCEU” are eligible for Master Gardener Continuing Education.

Succulent wreaths are a lovely addition to the garden or outdoor living space.  They can be used to decorate gates, entries, and tables.  They also make wonderful gifts.  This is a great project for entertaining.  The completed wreaths can be used as centerpieces and then go home with honored guests.  Accessories like bows and ornaments can be added seasonally to give your wreath a new look for every holiday.

There is a $25 cost to this class. This includes the frame, soil, and moss necessary to build a succulent wreath.  The plants of your choice will be an extra cost.
