Seeing the Year Ahead Clearly

The new decade has presented some amazing opportunities to connect with friends and clients far and wide and we’re excited to dive right in! This season, at Snug Harbor Farm, we are making a concerted effort to connect with the littles and are in the midst of developing a special program that will span the year with seasonal offerings of educating kids about plants and the joy of working with them in many ways. The program will kick off in the spring so stay tuned for more to come on that front.

Meanwhile, we are easing through the winter months with some of our fan favorites, starting things off with a style of plant that has put Snug on the map: topiaries! Yes, we are bringing back the ever popular Topiary Workshop on Saturday, January 25th. Learn the principles about how to grow, groom and maintain your very own.

Although the shop is temporarily shuttered while we complete inventory and work on some improvements on the interior, the greenhouses are bustling and building crops. We’ll be heading back to Hartford in February to see our friends in CT bringing the best that Snug has to offer at the Connecticut Flower & Garden Show from February 20-23rd. Let us know if there’s anything in particular that you are looking for and we’ll be sure to get it on the truck with your name on it.

In addition to the Flower Show, we are offering two other classes to get you in the greenhouse in February.  First up will be an immersion into all things succulent on February 15. This one sells out quickly so be sure to sign up soon if you want a spot.

To wind up the month, we’ll be looking forward to Spring and working with bulbs and branches in our Forced Fabulosity workshop on February 29th. This class is a layered look at the science of growing forced bulbs, anchored by branches about to burst, in one of our delicious terra cotta pots.

Let’s work on a collective, clear vision of a world of beauty that we share with one another. Let’s help our young grow up understanding what’s real and alive. Let’s really see the potential ahead of us and appreciate where we are and how we live our daily lives. We’re so happy to share all of that at Snug Harbor Farm. We’re looking forward to your next visit. Happy New Year to all of you.
