Calendar

Here is the monthly schedule of classes coming up for 2018. 

To see details about all of our class offerings, check each month and click on the Calendar Tab date. To register give a call or email; 608-780-2255 or lalastiers@gmail.com  Most if not all classes have hands-on gardening, hiking, preparing, cooking, crafting and snacking (my idea of school!). Children are welcome and childcare is available, especially if you let me know your needs ahead of class time. All classes are at the shop at 1033 Caledonia Street in La Crosse Wisconsin unless otherwise specified.

Each class is on a Thursday with a mid-day (noon till 2pm) and evening session (6 till 8pm) to meet folks' different scheduling needs. Classes are 2 structured hours and plenty of time after to continue discussions. All classes are $15 and include take-home materials, handouts and sips and munchies.
