Succulent Wreath Making Workshop
The Succulents are all hardy in our zone so can be hung outside.
The SS Garden Club will be subsidizing workshop costs in order to keep the fees low for members which makes this one super great value. These wreaths sell for much more
than the fees reflect.
This is a special workshop that is going to be challenging,
highly rewarding, and super fun!
