Crafts, plants, and beer! What a trio! Grab your friends for a fun evening at Old Colorado Brewery creating a cool holiday wreath with an instructor from Gulley Greenhouse. We will be taking a 10″ grapevine base, adding different preserved mosses, fun red berry baubles, and topping it all off with several living air plants! Drink some tasty craft beer and make a houseplant holiday showpiece you can enjoy all season long. Class size is limited so be sure to register ASAP! Beverages not included in ticket price. *This is an event for adults ages 21+
Join artist, Trish Murtha, and use watercolors and mixed media to make your own holiday cards, gift tags, invitations and more.

These make wonderful holiday gifts and décor and include the whimsy of ribbons, gems, glitter, simple lettering and basic calligraphy! Pre-registration is required.
Now that fall has officially arrived, it is time to start getting your Colorado garden ready for winter’s swift approach. Because Northern Colorado’s winter weather is rarely predictable, gardening in our area presents unusual challenges. The fluctuation between cold and warm temperatures, dry wind, and snow can wreak havoc on even the toughest plants. By following these few simple guidelines, your garden will come back again once the warm rays of spring sun start to shine.
Celebrate the arrival of autumn with this sweet pumpkin cottage fairy garden! Paint a house on the front of a little pumpkin and then plant a garden around it with tiny houseplants. Add decorative mosses, fencing, stones, and gourd figurines to complete this cozy fall scene. All materials and instruction included.
Fall planting and maintenance are key elements in a thriving landscape. Trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs planted in fall will give a glorious display of color beginning the next spring. Lawns maintained through the fall will be lush and green late into winter and reappear early in spring. And fall-blooming plants such as mums, pansies, and flowering cabbage are an easy way to add dynamic color in celebration of the changing seasons.
