Sunday, January 9, 2:00pm-4:00pm

410 West Lytle St, Murfreesboro, TN

Brass Horn Coffee

Enjoy a fun afternoon learning how to make a Succulent Turtle Topiary with Classy Cactus Farm. All materials are included in the price of admission. Turtle frame, moss, succulents, and more! Also, receive special coupons for attending the workshop! The Classy Cactus Farm story began the summer of 2020, when the owner’s oldest son wanted a lemonade stand. Not believing it was the best idea during a pandemic, they came up with the idea of succulent gift boxes. Easy to ship and bound to create smiles. Today, they continue to grow and have sold thousands of plants around the United States.
