Upcoming Workshops

Pick up a new skill!  We offer free public workshops throughout the year. Whether it’s a workshop on how to build a cold-frame for starting seeds or period-appropriate renovations for historic houses, we explore different ways to encourage reuse and environmental stewardship in your own home. Click the titles below for more details and to RSVP!

There are currently no new workshops scheduled – please continue to check in for updates or subscribe to our newsletter to learn about our free workshops and events each month.


Seeking volunteers for our Workshop Program

We are always searching for new workshop presenters!  If you are a tradesperson or creative DIYer and would like to help with a workshop on practical how-to’s or creative reuse, please propose your workshop idea here.  Please spread the word to your handy friends, too!

Annual Garden Party

Our annual Garden Party is a fun-filled event with a ton of landscaping and garden supplies; gardening demonstrations, experts, and vendors; activities for kids; live bands; and local food. Keep an eye on our blog and/or this webpage for updated details.

Green Friday & Small Business Saturday
Shop green, shop small, or not at all –
Here’s your excuse to stay away from the mall!

This is our alternative to Black Friday:  Instead of buying plastic stuff online or fighting crowds at the big box stores, come by our warehouse to relax with friends, shop with local artists, and celebrate community.
