Fairy Garden Fun

Each year a few folks gather in the gardens to create a little fairy garden to take home with them. We provide a log planter and some fun plants the fairies might favor. Plants to provide privacy screens, or plants with silvery foliage to reflect the moonlight, or creeping thyme plants to offer a soft bed for the fairies to take a fragrant nap.
A variety of natural objects to make tables, chairs, and shelters are provided to add to the miniature garden. Then little trinkets and treasures and found objects are tucked here and there to complete the decorations.
After a short program and some fairy stories everyone begins to plant and create. Ponds, swings, picnic areas, bridges, nooks and crannies, and special spots are created for the wee folk. A touch of sparkly glitter finishes the project!
