Summer is here and many beautiful butterflies are starting to emerge with the warmer weather. Invite them into your yard with a colorful beach bucket, planted with colorful and fragrant plants that attract butterflies.

To help get you in the right beachy, tropical mindset we are creating sunny pineapples from Jester Crown ferns. We will be using the kokedama method to contain the roots and soil of the fern. This cute project can be displayed many ways and is happy inside and out in the sunny summer months. Get ready to get a little messy!

A moon garden is a beautiful sensory garden that you create by using white flowers, silver or variegated foliage, and fragrant flowers and plants with blooms that open at night. Each child will create their own mini-oasis to reflect the moon's lunar glow and enjoy on moonlit nights.

We love our hanging baskets and are always looking for fun new planters to fill with spring annuals. Once we laid our eyes on this playful galvanized umbrella hanging planter, we knew we just had to add it to our workshop series. Hopefully the umbrella will remind you on hot and dry days that your plants need a little rain to stay happy, even if you must provide it.

This cheeky little birdhouse will surely make your feathered friends the talk of the town. Planting succulents and sedums on the roof of a nesting box is just about the cutest project we have seen in a while.

Create a bracelet with beads to help remind you of the many ways you can help keep the planet healthy.
