“Do you believe in fairies?” Peter Pan asked all who might be dreaming of the Neverland. “Do you believe in fairies? Yes, we do! We believe so wholeheartedly in these whimsical creatures that the Castle is offering free specialty workshops just for fairy garden making. What’s a fairy garden? It’s a wee garden for the wee folk, and takes up only a wee bit of space on your patio, front porch, or even inside on your desk. You don’t know how to garden? The fairies don’t care. They told us long ago that there’s no right or wrong way to make a fairy garden. All they want is a little place to live. Fairy gardens make year-round gardening fun. Create a special holiday theme and swap out the décor with the changing seasons. Best of all, fairy garden magic involves the whole family. Children love hands-on projects, and watching the gardens bloom. Lighten your hearts and brighten your homes with a bit of greenery and magic grown in your very own fairy garden.
Enjoy free admission to a Castle Fairy Garden Make & Take class. Held one evening each month throughout the summer, these hands-on classes will help you learn how to create, cultivate and maintain your own miniature fairy garden. All that’s required is a spark of imagination, plus a container. What type? Baskets, buckets, flower pots, small wagons, fish bowls (no fish, please!) and hollowed-out logs all work great. Castle Farms will provide the potting soil free of charge. The Castle also has containers, accessories, decorations and plants available for purchase.
Fairy Garden Make & Take Classes offered on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm, June 16, July 14 and August 11. Register here.
