April 17th: Green Thumb Gardening with Danny Russo

This workshop will explore the lifecycle of a plant, what plants need to grow, and how to pot and care for your own plant. Participants will be invited to put their green thumbs to work by potting their own plant to take home! This workshop is free and open to the public. Recommended for ages 5 - adult
