Container Crazy CT holds workshops and sells plants at various locations. Please verify hours via respective websites listed before heading there as they are subject to change.


Several workshops are held annually in the Broad Brook section of East Windsor, CT at Container Crazy CT’s personal residence (inside or outside based on season). Also, you may meet Cathy Testa at this location, by appointment, for special requests or custom order pick-ups. Please text or call (860-977-9473) or email Cathy Testa at containercathy@gmail.com if interested. The location has a long driveway with plenty of parking. There are no regular “store hours” at this location. During C19, “Zero Contact” Porch Pick-ups are arranged by your preferred time at this location.


Cathy Testa’s custom plant gifts, specifically for Valentine’s Day, have been showcased in a wonderful artisan shop located on Main Street in Stafford Springs, CT. To learn more about this location, please visit Artisans at Middle River.


Container Crazy CT attends the Ellington Farmers Market, located in Arbor Park during the summer and fall months on specific dates as a guest vendor where we offer a new free demonstration with plant sales each season. See ellingtonfarmersmarket.com for additional details and hours. Plenty of parking available, but this market gets busy!

2020 Upcoming: Cathy Testa will be at the March 14th, 2020 Ellington Winter Farmers Market to present on “Seed Starting” primarily focused on tomato and pepper plants. For a small fee, attendees will be provided with hands-on sowing. Great for the kids! Note: This event was cancelled due to C19, but seed sales took place by mail and pick-up. Thank you for your orders and supporting my small business during this time.


We have also offered an annual May Container Gardening Workshop at Strong Family Farm located at 274 West Street. See strongfamilyfarm.org for additional details and hours. This farm also has a new farm stand with fresh vegetables and home good products. We highly recommend them! They have a turn-around driveway and easy parking by the barns on the property. It is a fun place to visit in the autumn season as well.


If you are interested in any topic on this site, don’t hesitate to inquire about scheduling a private session if you prefer. You may hold it one-on-one style, or with a small group of your liking. We hope to hear from you soon.


We offer select workshop topics at your home residence for small groups. Don’t be shy and inquire for details. Set-up your guest tables, invite your friends, and learn about plants while creating amazing pieces with Container Crazy CT’s step by step instructions and plant knowledge details.

Thank you,

Cathy Testa
