SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE – Make & Take Workshop – Scented Milk Bath – Saturday, March 28th – 12noon – $10 fee

The idea of taking a long, hot soak in a milk bath may seem like a strange concept, but people have been enjoying the benefits of milk baths for centuries.  It turns out that a milk bath is easy to mix together and very moisturizing which will leave your skin soft and silky, perfect for our dry Colorado climate.

We will mix dry ingredients including Epsom salts, buttermilk powder and other all natural ingredients with essential oils. Buttermilk is high in fat and lactic acid, both which help soften and hydrate skin.  Then we will pour the blend into a glass milk bottle that you can decorate with botanicals, add a hand stamped label and tie on your finished product!  You’ll take home your finished milk bath and 3 recipes. What a great gift-or keep it for yourself!

Which one will you choose to make?  Calming Lavender, Invigorating Eucalyptus or Warming Vanilla Brown Sugar.


SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE – #6 – Roses & Peonies – Saturday, April 4th – 10:00am

Gardening classes and workshops offered by Creek Side Gardens are the perfect opportunity for us to share and learn more about the wonderful world of plants, flowers, gardening and how to manage it all. Growing flowers and plants is a real blend of science and artistic expression. Sometimes we have the feeling for what we want to do, but don’t know how to go about it. Sometimes we have a technical plan but are just not sure how to put it all together in a creative way. Sometimes we don’t even know what we don’t know. These are the times to visit Creek Side Gardens and attend our free gardening classes and gardening workshops. Our Green Team of gardening experts, designers, plants-people and friendly folks are dedicated to helping you put the pieces of the puzzle together.

Creek Side classes and workshops offer instruction and inspire you to further your plant and gardening capabilities. Green Team members host the classes and cover that day’s topic in an open, informal manner that allows the attendees to ask questions and share their experiences with the instructor and other attendees. This way everybody has an opportunity to learn something new. Even those of us who have been gardening and growing plants for a long time know every day there is always something new to learn. And we learn the best way from one another.

Let us add color to your life. Call 303-933-8493 or contact us online.

We understand everybody has busy lives, busy schedules and it is sometimes difficult to find time to do everything we want to do. But, if you are interested in learning and sharing just a little more about your gardening experiences, take a Saturday morning hour, grab a coffee and come on over to the place where inspiration grows. You’ll find the Creek Side gardening classes and gardening workshops are easy, fun and worth your time. Check out our workshop calendar for what topics are coming up next.
