Freshman Gardener Class

tomatoes-caroleOn August 6th at 2:00pm, the nursery will start a “Freshman Gardener” class. Please join Amanda for some helpful tips.

Gardening can be extremely rewarding, especially here in Northern California! You don’t need years of experience to become a good gardener. Growing a garden successfully takes a little bit of time, patience, and a willingness to keep learning but there are some basics that will help you.

Crafternoon – Join this Month’s Craft Workshop!

Crafternoons is a chance to access your inner artist once a month at Alden Lane! It is an opportunity to get together and create something amazing and have a bunch of fun doing it. Even better- invite a couple of friends to do it with you! These make and take projects don’t require any special skills, and kids from 12 to 112 can do them (although younger kids could do it with the help of an adult). Pick one project (or more!) and pre-pay with our Alden Lane Cashiers to reserve your space, as the classes fill up fast. (925)447-0280. If we don’t have 8 sign ups by the Wednesday before the Saturday class, the class will be canceled, so register as soon as possible. Let’s have FUN!

Concrete Leaf Workshop – Saturday, Aug. 27th, 1:30 to 3:30 pmThis class is always in demand, so we are bringing it back. We are using quick dry concrete to cast up to 3 leaves, using fresh leaves from our gardens, about 8 to 10″ each (great to create a fountain with!). They are an amazing addition to your garden, or to give as a gift. They may or may not be dry enough to embellish with paint, but we will have it on hand and show you the technique. You will be amazed at how beautiful they come out – instant artist! The cost for this class is $48.00 plus tax. Please sign up by August 20th to reserve your space. Call 925 447-0280
