Fee: $89

Join us for a delightfully messy, hands-on, hypertufa trough-making workshop. Hypertufa is a lightweight, porous concrete mixture made from Portland cement, peat, and perlite. Your small, weatherproof container will welcome plants that like well-drained conditions such as sedums, hens and chicks, and rock garden plants. Ideal for those with limited space, troughs can be planted as miniature gardens or to display choice specimens. Louise will provide individual attention and step-by-step instructions from mixing and molding to aftercare.

Please bring a pair of heavy duty rubber gloves for working with the cement mixture. Dress in layers in clothing that can get dirty.
