Hypertufa Trough Workshop

April 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$30 - $40

Invented by and meant for gardeners, hypertufa troughs have an appearance similar to limestone planters but without the weight and expense. Learn with Curator Mary Tipping about the science behind hypertufa, and create your own planter with the simplest of supplies. Class participants will create their very own weather-resistant hypertufa trough to take home. Since the class involves mixing cement, we will supply garden trowels, rubber dishwashing gloves, and dust masks. Dress for the weather and getting dirty! Limit 15.

Members: $30                   Non-members: $40
