May 2018 Note:

In regards to Spring 2018, we will not be holding our annual May “Container Gardening” workshops due to several reasons: Cathy T will be taking some courses, has a nice bucket list travel planned, and is revamping her growing space for some needed maintenance.

With that said, you never know what may spark interest in between this activity – so if something spontaneous comes up for a workshop or demo in spring, it will be posted here. And, we usually have various plants in stock, so if you have a need, feel free to inquire.

Additionally, if your organization is interested in holding a demonstration at your facility on any of the workshop topics previously held (see 2017 information below) or new topics for 2018 to be added, feel free to contact Cathy Testa, owner of Container Crazy CT located in Broad Brook, Connecticut.

Details of each event listed above for the 2018 fall and winter season will be added to this as individual posts. You will be able to see the fees, details of what is included and photos, but now is a good time to save the dates on your calendars.

The fall will be the highlight this season, as well as, our annual Holiday workshop which will remain on the schedule as always.

Stay Tuned for More,

Thank you – Cathy Testa
