February & March events 2019


Don’t forget to mark March 9th on your calendars and reserve time to take part in the Taft's Brewpourium Spring Market Garden Event. It will run from 11:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m. and promises to surpass your expectations. With almost a dozen local vendors, you're sure to find everything you'll need to welcome in the spring season—and then some! Indoor plants, seeds for your garden, fresh juices, honey and so much more will be available!  In addition to hosting a Succulent & Sip class at 1:00 p.m. during the event, I will have a booth in Brewpourium where I will be answering gardening questions and offering an array of indoor plants for purchase! Although the bulk of my business is selling the flowers I grow, I also enjoy creating one-of-a-kind indoor plants and planters just for you. I love the idea that everything old can be new again. So many of my plants are potted in unique vintage containers I hand pick from local thrift stores, along with interesting vessels not originally intended as planters.  Check out the following list of vendors! You won’t want to miss this special day. I look forward to seeing you there!
