Featured Upcoming Event on October 3 at 1:00 pm

Succulents with Valerie Woodhouse

In this workshop, you’ll learn basic plant care and how to propagate succulents and cacti through cuttings. You’ll gain knowledge on how to properly water, fertilize, and maintain your succulents, and learn how to multiply your collection through at-home propagation. Valerie will cover how to propagate six types of succulents and cacti, mistakes to avoid, and how to get the most success with cuttings. Her workshop includes a propagation demo to illustrate technique and time for any and all succulent-related questions. (A Zoom option will not be offered for this event.)

Bio: Valerie Woodhouse started farming in 2012 and quickly was drawn to the greenhouse. She developed a love for succulents and cacti, initially growing her collection from leftover plants and cuttings from the greenhouses where she worked. Valerie and her partner, Eli Hersh, started Honey Field Farm in spring 2020. They now carry one of the largest collections of succulents and cacti in the Upper Valley. She holds succulent workshops on the farm and enjoys making terrariums in her spare time.
