workshop2 2015Gardening 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 weekly 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.

Held every Saturday morning and covering a wide variety of topics, the 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.
