Design A Hanging Basket & Goat Mingle

Join us on the Ryder Family Farm for a unique hanging basket activity. This a fun outdoor event in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest to get you in the springtime spirit. Design a custom hanging basket to take home and enjoy! We will provide you an empty hanging basket, soil and an assortment of plants to to build your very own custom hanging basket. Light refreshments will be included too! Afterwards, spend some time in our baby goat nursery for some selfies and cuddles!

You will be provided with all required basket materials and instruction. All you need is to bring your own garden gloves, hand shovel (if needed) and a water bottle, we’ve got the rest covered. You can build a basket with annual flowers, herbs or vegetables. You choose your basket type when purchasing your ticket. This class will be roughly an hour followed by 30 minute mingle session with the baby animals. For the safety of everyone, masks are required while not socially distanced. There may be some gathering around the baby animals and such. All skill levels are welcome!
