Join HPS member Louise Clarke for a delightfully messy, hands-on, outdoor hypertufa trough-making workshop.  Hypertufa was developed by rock gardeners as an alternative to tufa rock, which is not locally available, and therefore expensive. 
Hypertufa is a lightweight, porous concrete mixture made from Portland cement, peat, and perlite. Your small, weatherproof container will welcome plants that like well-drained conditions such as sedums, hens and chicks, and rock garden plants. Ideal for those with limited space, troughs can be planted as miniature gardens or to display choice specimens. 
Participants will mix the ingredients, form the trough within a mold, and learn how to release a trough from its mold and finish it. Your instructor will provide individual attention and step-by-step instructions from mixing and molding to aftercare.
Dress for messy fun! 
Pre-registration is required. $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers. Participants will receive a coupon for 10% off at the store.  Registration is limited to 10 people and is considered complete when payment is received. A supply list will be sent upon receipt.
