Thursday, August 6th and Thursday, August 20th | 6:30pm-8:00pm | DIY Hypertufa


In the 1800s people made alpine planters or troughs out of limestone, but over time it became less abundant. Today we call this organic, natural alpine planter-look hypertufa. Hyper means “manmade” and tufa means "naturally-occurring." Put the two together and you have hypertufa!

In Part 1 of this workshop, on August 6th, you'll have the chance to make a hypertufa planter. At the end of class, you'll leave your creation at the greenhouse to cure so they're ready to go for Part 2.

In Part 2 of this workshop, on August 20th, you'll get to fill your planter(s) with succulents for your indoor or outdoor enjoyment.

Please note: If in person class are not yet permitted under the phase 4 reopening plan, this class will move online through Zoom on the same date and time and materials can be picked up from Jamie's Greenhouse on August 4th from 4:00pm-6:30pm.
