GNOME AT HOME!
Because of the tremendous response to our Holiday Gnome class which filled very quickly, we’re providing an option for you to create your own Gnome in the comfort of your home!
This “follow along at home” version of the class will be conducted through Facebook Live (Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens Facebook page) on Sunday, December 8 from 12:00 – 2:00 to follow along as we create gnomes in the class, and you can create yours at home!
