THE AMHERST GARDEN CLUB Invites you to a Terrarium Workshop with ART SCARPA
Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014, 1:30- 3:30 pm; Location to be announced
Art Scarpa will be coming to Amherst for our September 4, 2014 meeting. He is one of the founders of the Cactus and Succulent Society of Massachusetts. His morning program to the AGC will be, “Miniature Plants. . . . There is always room for one more!” We have asked him to stay and do an afternoon lecture and workshop on Terrariums. This program would be at the expense of the individual member and participants would be limited and on a first come basis, so sign up early. A $25.00 deposit required to hold your place. If we don’t fill, we will be opening this event to other neighboring garden clubs. We also will have a wait list.
The 2 gallon glass terrarium and all you need, will be included in the fee. You will be able to select from a variety of plant material provided by Art. You may bring additional fairy garden figures or items for the terrarium if you want. Local stores like Bedford Fields, County Stores and House by the Side of the Road carry these kind of items so keep your eyes open this summer for them. There would be room for a “few” of this type of items.
At our May meeting many of you signed up and left your $25.00 deposit. If you did not leave a deposit please mail it or drop it off at Marti Warren’s house in the next few weeks. If you are interested in joining this workshop you need to register now by emailing Marti Warren and sending a check for $25.00 to hold your place. The cost of the workshop is $50.00 and the remainder will be due the day of the class.
