Visiting Bainbridge Gardens is an excursion in and of itself. Acres of garden and landscaping goods, a forest trail, a gift store, a cafe and a playground make it a fun way to get outside. But, Bainbridge Gardens also offers classes. This is a great way to learn about a topic you are interested in and also a nice way to meet other Islanders who have or want to have green thumbs. They have classes for adults, kids, Island Newcomers and in the winter time they have an annual wreath making workshop. Below is a sampling of some of their up and coming July classes.
