Fairy GardensDescription

Join 4-H volunteer Kris Bulla, as we explore the fun art of creating Fairy Gardens. Class is split into two sessions. First session is June 11, 2020, at 2 p.m. via Zoom. This session will be informative with interactive lessons and creative designs. A follow-up session will be held on June 18 at 2 p.m. via Zoom to allow youth to share their successes and showcase their fairy gardens. Youth will use materials found at home.


Registration is required in 4HOnline. When registering for this and other 4-H events, select the member from the family home page in the bottom event registration box to see what events each member is eligible to attend.

Suggested Materials List

Allow youth to brainstorm ideas for items for their fairy gardens. May include, but not limited to:  doors, windows, chimneys for Fairy houses; birdbaths, windchimes, birdfeeders for garden decor, benches and other furniture for fairies (or gnomes), miniature plants, small succulents for gardens, and even fun things for the fairies to play with like marbles or other miniature items. If you were a fairy and had your own garden, what would you like in it?
