Each participant will make a planter during the class, which costs $30 per person.
A “Making your own Hypertufa Planter” workshop will take place Tuesday, Aug. 8, in Warrenton.

Master Gardener Diana Graves and Horticulture Extension Agent Tim Ohwiler will walk participants through the creation of their own hypertufa planters. The mixture of concrete and other materials produces what look like volcanic stone pots created in Italy centuries ago.

The workshop will begin at 5 p.m. at the Fauquier Education Farm, 8396 Meetze Road, just east of Warrenton.

Participants will need to plan to return a week later to retrieve their planters after the materials have cured.

“Making your own Hypertufa Planter” is part of the Fauquier/Rappahannock Master Gardeners’ Twilight Tuesdays program, a series of horticultural classes offered spring to fall each year for the community. Horticultural experts and seasoned Master Gardeners teach the classes, covering a range of topics – from gardening techniques and tips, to advances in environmental and conservation issues.

The Aug. 8 workshop will cost $30 per person to cover the cost of supplies.

Checks should be made payable to Fauquier County Master Gardener Association and mailed to FCMGA 24 Pelham St. Warrenton, Va. 20186. Registration will be final with payment.
The deadline to register is Thursday, Aug. 3, or when the class reaches its 20-person limit. The rain date Aug. 22.

Organizers recommend registering and arriving early.
