About the Event

It's time to get creative at our Gnome Homes & Dino Dens Workshop!  With two dates to choose from, we hope that you will be able to join us! 

First, guests will receive their Workshop Kits filled with all the tools needed to begin crafting a special take home habitat. Next, we will each get to choose our own colorful gnome, dino buddy, crawly insect or fairy friend from our special creature collection. Then, together we will gather other nature based materials from around the farm and get to work painting, gluing and decorating our tiny spaces. Guides will be on hand to provide assistance and accommodations as needed!

During this workshop, we will also take a tour of Our Sensory Farm with Farmer Shannon! We will meet the goats, check in with Piggy and hang out with the chickens! We can also take a nature walk, explore the sensory stations, enjoy the mini farmer barn, play on the playground and swing in the forest! 

Our family friendly workshops provide a supportive, encouraging space for families and friends to spend quality time together while enjoying the great outdoors! With so many great opportunies for communication and connection with your child(ren) while working together on a fun project, our safe accepting environment is the perfect place to create positive, new memories with those you love!
