Nestled on 4 acres of cultivated land, Sowing Seeds offers a bevy of hands-on gardening classes for plant appreciators of all ages. Best Mother Nature by creating small, portable, container gardens that can survive without her tear-filled downpours, or kids can get crafty by combining rocks, plants, and tiny garden accents to create fanciful mini landscapes.
