The Edison and Ford Winter Estates popular floral arrangement garden class is back! Participants can attend the session on February 22 at 1:30 p.m. or February 26 at 10 a.m. We will start this program with a 40-minute classroom presentation on plant conditioning and how to make a professional arrangement using the plants and foliage in your backyard.

The class will be taught by rum experts from Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery. The class will be held in the River Pavilion, along the Caloosahatchee River. Guests are invited to take a romantic stroll along the river, while listening to music by David Rojas.

There are still several spots open in the Edison and Ford Winter Estates Animation Station School Break Camp on January 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.! School Break Camps are designed for students in grades 1-6 when school is out. Campers explore Edison's "living laboratory" while our educators, called "Wild Wizards," teach topics in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), history and the natural world.

Edison and Ford Winter Estates is resuming its popular Hypertufa Pottery Class on October 30 and November 6 at 9 a.m.! This is a two-part class, so participants should attend both sessions. Hypertufa is a lightweight mixture of Portland Cement, sphagnum peat moss and perlite that can be molded into a variety of shapes and pottery sizes. In part one of the class, participants will create a mold using recycled plastic garden containers and then pour a Hypertufa mixture into the mold for a unique wall pot. Wall pots require less space in the garden and may also be attached directly to a wall. In part two, participants will de-mold the pot and apply a surface treatment to complete the project. Retired art instructor and Edison Ford volunteer, Jim Hopton, will teach the class. Participants should bring a pair of rubber or latex kitchen gloves. All other supplies will be provided. Masks are recommended, but not required. The class size is limited to 10 participants. Register online at edisonford.org.

Camps are led by Edison Ford instructors, called "Wild Wizards" who teach topics in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), history and the natural world.
