This Friday, January 10th, is National Houseplant Appreciation Day and to celebrate, our friends at Baker Garden and Gift has invited Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market to the greenhouse for a Vintage Succulent Garden Workshop!
At this workshop, the Farm is providing the vintage planters while Baker nursery will provide the succulents, soil, rocks, sand - and the savvy info to keep these plants alive!
This National Houseplant Appreciation Day event is part of our January celebration of National Hobby Month.

Fact: Houseplants are good for your health. (Which is why we need to appreciate them more!)
Fact: Talking to plants really does help them grow - especially if the speaker is a woman!
Fact: Music really is good for plants. (So music lovers can combine hobbies!)
Yes, plants can be considered pets! (And landlords don't object to plant pets!)
So go on, start your life-long love affair with plants! Attend the succulent plant workshop at Baker this Friday!
If you can't make it - or even if you do attend and fall in love with succulents in vintage planters! - the Farm will continue the celebration on Saturday, January 11th, with some healthy succulents from the Baker nursery planted in vintage pots and planters!
