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.
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!
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. It is a fun place to visit in the autumn season as well. Don’t miss their annual Harvest Fest where we showcased our succulent pumpkins this year!
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, which was a great day and turnout. When we participate in Shop Small Day, we offer raffles and prizes. Stay tuned!
