'Pop-up' Workshops

Unpredictable Northern Michigan weather makes it hard to predict when certain teaching moments will be available at TC Community Garden.  Because of this, not all classes can be scheduled in advance.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook to ensure you have access to our weekly 'Pop-Up' classes starting in May by clicking the button below.
