Holiday greens workshop Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Yes, it is still on! And here is how: members will cut and condition greens from their yards and drop them off at a designated outdoor location. Then folks will come by appointment to that spot to collect conditioned greens, 2 containers with Oasis, ribbons, glittery adornments, etc. Later that same afternoon and now bubbling with holiday spirit, we’ll display our creations at our ZOOM meeting. More instructions on conditioning greens, drop off point, pick up appointment scheduling etc. will be provided closer to December.
