Virtual Intro to Air Plants

January 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register

Join us for a virtual class that demystifies air plants and their care! Greenhouse Coordinator Emilia Arellano will review the basics of air plants and demonstrate a few plant-friendly display options that do not rely on glue.  Although generally considered to be indestructible because they do not require soil or extensive watering, we will review a few tricks to create the environment for your air plants to thrive and reward your TLC with blooms. Auto captioning will be available.

Air Plant Kits are available for purchase to follow along and practice your newly acquired skills.

Class Price:

General Admission $25

GPCA Member/Volunteer $20

Optional Add-On Air Plant Kits ($15) are available for purchase  through 1/25/21 or while supplies last.  Kits include one 4 inch by 6 inch slab of virgin cork bark and three air plants. After 1/25/21, or once supplies are exhausted, you can register for the class without materials.  Purchased Air Plant Kits are available for contact-free pickup by appointment only at the Conservatory on Thursday 1/28/21 and Friday 1/29/21 from 4-6:30 pm.

Scholarships are available to cover the class fee! Please fill out this Scholarship Application or contact Mattie Wilson at mwilson@garfieldpark.org for more information.
