Our private classes and planting bar events give your group a chance to have fun together while nurturing everyone’s identity as a plant artist! Participants will gain plant knowledge, get their hands dirty, and leave with their own creation, complete with care instructions.
The classes generally run for 90-120 minutes, but can be easily tailored to fit your group’s time-frame. We serve wine and light snacks at our onsite events.
See below for all of our class descriptions, and how we can create our popular planting bar at your event.

Private Planting Bar
Let us create our popular Planting Bar at your event! We offer one of the Bay Area’s largest selection of decorative rocks, mosses, and sand to maximize creative potential. The Planting Bar is a super fun and affordable way to have a large group make plant art together. We set out a diverse selection of plants, and all of the supplies, so that people can jump in and work at their own pace. Our knowledgeable staff is there to explain what to do and help shepherd the party. You select the type of project (terrarium, vertical garden, traditional planter). All the projects come with a box for travel and care instructions for the plant art.
