Hypertufa is a substitute material for natural tufa – a very porous natural limestone rock – and is used to make garden ornaments and containers because it is much lighter than traditional concrete. Students will make “trough” container that can be used for planting (cacti and succulents do exceptionally well in this type of container). Laura Mast, Greenhouse Supervisor, will lead the class.
Non-member - $25, Member - $20, Vounteer. - $22 (Capacity 20)

Make your Own Natural Lotions

How many ingredients are listed on the back of your favorite bottle of lotion?  Does anyone really know what all those scientific names really mean?  Join Sue Yarger from Sky Essentials to learn how to make three types of natural lotions.  The class will begin with a brief introduction to learn about the uses and benefits of the essential oils that will be used to scent and add therapeutic properties to the three lotions.  The first lotion will be made from beginning to completion; a quick method will be used for the second lotion; and finally, lotion bars will be made.  You will leave with samples of each lotion to enjoy or give as gifts!
