Inspired by Nature

Spend an evening at the museum creating a coil “Olla” for your garden. Earthenware clay irrigation jars, or “ollas” in Spanish, provide one of the most effective ways to give plants water. Roots of plants attach themselves to the porous unglazed clay, and suck water as they need it.   Learn how the ollas are used in our very own Kiwanis Learning Garden.

Participants will learn about the history of “ollas,” and leave their pot with the instructor for firing, to pick up one week later.

21+ only bring yourI.D.
$25Tickets  

$20 for museum members. 

A portion of every ticket sale will go to help support the Learning Garden at the Museum.
