Let's roll up our sleeves and dive into flower gardening and floral design together.  There is nothing to fear!

Evelyn leads workshops on topics ranging from Gardening Basics to Creating Your Own Cutting Garden to Garden-inspired Floral Design and DIY holiday wreath making.

NEW IN 2019: Butternut Gardens is expanding its educational outreach by partnering with Kelly Grich, holistic health coach with terrific talent - flower and otherwise - to bring more workshops and gatherings here at the farm and also right to you.

Among Kelly’s signature offerings: Flowers for Emotional Health and Wellbeing, at-home and in-office personalized flower gatherings, flower workshops for children, and badge-earning opportunities for Girl Scout troops. 

Workshops are offered at Butternut Gardens and at alternate locations throughout the year.  Evelyn also teaches workshops through the Town of Westport's Continuing Education program. Sign-up for the Continuing Education workshops is done directly through Westport Continuing Education at www.westportcontinuinged.com.
