Grandpa’s Garden Basket Workshop

It’s planted and while you are waiting for those veggies to grow…Come build your own garden gathering basket.   Useful for gathering herbs, vegetables, even eggs from the chicks. They also work great as a decorative accent in your home. Modeled after farmhouse baskets of yesteryear we will build with wood, a round dowel handle, and a screen bottom to allow dirt to wash off and through. After building you will have the opportunity to add painted accents as well.  Family groups welcome.    Ages 12 to Adult on your own but families with younger children can work together on one. $65 per basket.
