Join us for a favorite CGC holiday tradition when we once again host our annual Greens Gatherings!

People have a passion for making things happen with their own two hands. Some people use DIY as a healthy way to escape from everyday stress, tapping into creativity they didn’t even know they possessed.  Wouldn’t it feel good, as you gather to celebrate the season with family and friends, to be able to say, “I did that with my hands?” And nobody needs to know how many cookies and hot chocolate you consumed while crafting!

Bring a friend and your pruners, wire-cutters, and scissors and we’ll provide a bundle of fresh-cut greens, some warm refreshments, and some festive holiday spirit. A limited quantity of extra greens, novelties, and ribbons will be available for purchase.

Instructor: Sue Trusty

Cost: $40. Limit 12 participants per workshop.
