I attended the 1st orchid class this morning and LOVED it! Unfortunately, I have to return to Colorado and won’t be here for the next 2 classes. The instructor said you were going to run the classes again in the winter. I will be here in March. Is it possible to run those classes again in March?
Good afternoon Pat, Thank you for your message. I’m glad you enjoyed the class. Next year classes are scheduled for February 9, 16 & 23 based on the instructor’s availability and we will once again be offering them in the summer. Be sure to check our calendar page periodically for exact dates.
