    2. For the in person classes, what time are the classes usually held?
    3. What kind of field trips are included?
    4. Where are the field trips?
    5. About how many people take the classes each year?
    6. Do you ever give or sell cuttings from the plants at the Teaching Gardens?

    5. The class number varies from year to year -however it usually is around 12-18 students.
    6. We annually dig up and repot plants from the Teaching Garden and sell them at our spring plant sale-which is usually around the third Saturday of April.
