SFA Gardens to host miniature fairy garden workshop

May 7, 2013 - SFA Public Affairs

NACOGDOCHES, Texas - SFA Gardens Research Associate Dawn Stover will host a miniature fairy garden workshop from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 11, in Room 118 of the Agriculture Building on Wilson Drive.

Participants will create a magical, mystical miniature habitat designed for even the most particular fairy. Stover will assist the aspiring "gnomescapers" in creating a fairy garden of their very own. The workshop also will include instruction on making fairy garden accessories from items collected in the garden and from home.

Materials will be provided, and participants will build and take home a 1-square-foot fairy garden that includes soil, plants and at least one accessory. Cost is $30 for SFA Gardens members and $35 for non-members. Two people may attend and create one garden for $45.

Space is limited. Please call the SFA Gardens Education Office at (936) 468-1832 or email erodewald@sfasu.edu to reserve a spot.
