*Special Notes For Green House Classes*

You MUST register through Carlton Community Education; your spot is reserved once payment has been received. Please ensure to specify date AND time, as this will assist in securing you a spot in the class you wish to attend. Please also include the name of the class (Container Garden and Fairy Gardens).

All people attending theses classes must be paid and preregistered prior to the class deadline. Helpers must pay the class fee also.



Our popular container gardening classes will have a little change to them this year. We have eight classes scheduled and we will not be having miniature gardening or succulent gardening classes. Enrollees will be able to select their own plants, plant in a container they bring in (12" minimum) or one they obtain from The Green House. Enrollment closes 7 days prior to each class or until maximum enrollment for each class is reached. To enroll in one of the classes, call Carlton Community Ed at 218-384-4225 x 213. All plant material, soil & containers will be available at a reduced price for the class. Instruction & assistance will be provided by the greenhouse owner, Jim Fahrenholz and The Green House staff. Tuesday April 14 and Thursday April 16 evening classes will be instructed by Jenifer Kiminski, greenhouse Production Supervisor. All material used will be paid for at the conclusion of the class and the planted creations will be cared for by The Green House until the scheduled last pick-up date of May 15th. Classes are held at The Green House, 210 6th Street in Carlton.
Most are tired of winter & are looking forward to spring, so this class is a chance to smell the greenhouse, see the green of spring, get your hands in the soil & have some fun. If you have not had the chance to participate in this activity get on board. What was once simply a good idea has turned into an event.

Sign up by calling Carlton Community Ed at 218-384-4225 x 213 & enroll early as all classes will fill fast. Cost of enrollment is $15.00 per attendee.
