Week 9 (5/24/2006)
Weve got some interesting and informative events scheduled for the next few weeks here at Americas Best Flowers. Our Quick Classes and workshops are typically FREE. There may be a charge for materials for some of our events, such as the upcoming Fathers Day planter for elementary school children or our Make-A-Scarecrow Day, but unlike other greenhouses, our classes are usually complimentary. Our events are RAIN OR SHINE because we have over 2 acres of covered greenhouses at our main location in Cottage Grove. Come on out and join us! We love getting to know our customers.
