Best Garden Center: Don Moulds Plantation and Garden Center
One popular class, Cement Leaf Casting, involves making decorative accessories out of leaves, and casting them in a specially-made cement. The classes are always a social event, says manager Laura Mould. “They’re casual classes, like you’re all visiting around a pot of coffee,” she says. “There’s never a dumb question.” Students are often given handouts to bring home, as well as knowledge about new plants and product to grow in their gardens. “We’re always looking for suggestions,” says Mould. “We want folks to enjoy it. Classes are held the second Saturday of the month. Call the stores to reserve a spot.
