Peoria-area horticulturist, Ella Maxwell, will be here to help you create a rustic garden container for your patio, deck, or garden. We will have the materials on hand for you to make a small planter using a mixture of materials called hypertufa, which looks like stone after it cures. You can also incorporate your own found treasures such as marbles, broken china, cut glass, or rocks, into the surface of the pot during construction. Hypertufa troughs and planters make great containers for succulents and other alpine plants that require good drainage. Please wear old clothes and shoes. Reservations are required. Fee: $20. Free to just observe.
