Container Crazy CT holds workshops and sells plants at various locations. Please verify store hours via respective websites listed before heading there as they are subject to change.
BROAD BROOK, CT
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) if interested. The location has a long driveway with plenty of parking. There are no regular “store hours” at this location.
SOUTH WINDSOR, CT
Container Crazy CT has a small temporary showcase of plant gifts, garden supplies, and plants at BOOK CLUB Bookstore and More at 869 Sullivan Avenue, South Windsor, CT during her plant pop-up shop period. Her pop-up style shops are always on the move, so stay tuned for new locations in the spring of 2018. Cathy T’s regular hours at this current vendor pop-up showcase are Tuesdays and Thursdays (10 am to 6 pm) until the end of September 2017. Get your planted gifts before we are “on the move” again.
Container Crazy CT attends the Ellington Farmers Market, located in Arbor Park during the summer 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! Go early when you can.
We also offer 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.
A newly added venue, where Container Crazy CT is offering her Succulent Topped Pumpkins, Terrariums Workshops, and Micro-Greens Demonstrations, on specific dates, is located in Stafford Springs on Main Street. This new Stafford Cidery is also known as Crazy Cock Cider. Please visit their website for regular hours. Limited parking is available on Main Street or you may park down the road at a local gas station, which is walking distance to the cidery. Inquire before heading there via their website for more information and regular hours.
NOVEMBER SPECIAL SHOP-SMALL DAY
We held our first shop small day last year in 2016 and plan to hold it again on November 25, 2017 at the new cidery noted above. Stay tuned for the details, and be sure to save the date. We will post details later this autumn season for you.
