Saturday, April 27 | 11 am – 12 pm: Grapevine Planter

Take home a piece of history from Durant when you make a unique succulent garden from the trunks of our 46 year old Bishop pinot noir vines. In this workshop, you will use a beautiful, gnarly, twisted piece of pinot noir trunk and learn to carve out spaces to plant a variety of hardy succulents. This makes a wonderful centerpiece on an outdoor summer table or a piece of art for your garden.

A clever way to add vertical interest to your garden or patio, Kokedama is a ball of soil covered with moss in which an ornamental plant grows.
