Resident cottages house working studio space for groups of artists. We come and go at irregular hours, but 1st and 3rd Saturday demo days and annual events open to the public are listed on our calendar below, or at this LINK. Come walk the gardens and stop in to meet your local artisans. Garden clubs can also offer answers to questions, and opportunities for volunteers.
