We offer a wide variety of educational and informational opportunities throughout the year. From time to time we have social events as well.
Some of our seminars will be no-cost, others may have a registration fee to cover the cost of materials and supplies. Some seminars will be completely informational while others will have hands-on "how to" sessions where participants will literally get their hands dirty while making something. Please be aware that some seminars may have limits on the numbers of participants, so please read through the seminar descriptions to see if pre-registration is necessary.
All seminars and workshops will be held at the Garden Center unless otherwise noted.

Butterfly Gardens - how to make and maintain them
Presented by Eileen Dowd Stukel
Beekeeping 101 -
Presented by Bob Reiner
Bob is employed as the state's apiarist with the SD Department of Ag.
This informational seminar will walk attendees the basics on how to keep bees, what equipment and
permits are needed, and where to find additional information on beekeeping. The seminar will be
suitable for beginners but will present information on relevant laws and bee disease updates relevant
to experienced beekeepers as well.
Making Living Picture Frames
Taught by Art Smith
This class will provide all materials for each participant to make their own living picture frame filled with succulents. Projects will be
able to be taken home immediately after the class Choice between 6x6", 12x6", and 12x12" already made frames; not all succulents
will be zoned for our area so these will need be taken in during the winter. Class type setting, but individual attention will be available
if needed, so you don't have to be an accomplished do-it yourself'er to make these! This should be a fun way to learn how to make
really neat garden creations that can be wall hung inside or outside during the growing season.
