Create a Teacup Garden / Bird Feeder

April 6, 2019, 10 am to 12 Noon

If winter’s cold and lack of greenery has you down, fight back by crafting a lovely teacup garden for your home.  Planting a teacup garden is a wonderful way to up-cycle and create a memorable planter for the windowsill, table or outdoor garden.  These pretty projects are a recipe for fun.  Container gardens, bouquet of roses, pot of herbs or a daisy topiary are clever ways to give your home a lift, or you could turn it into a bird feeder.  Teacup gardens or bird feeders make great gifts and are delightful projects for parents and children  to show the fun and creativity of growing or to simply watch the birds.  So take time for creativity and savor the pleasure for months to come.  Note:   Students must provide teacups.  Corresponds to personal enrichment course YES/YHS604.
