New Season, New Plant! Fall is a great time to introduce more house plants into your space as this tends to be the time of year we begin to see less greenery outside! Indoor houseplants make a great addition to any home, regardless of size. House plants have personality, they make us happy and healthy, and can be easy to take care of- even for a plant parent newbie.

Join Tangletown staff at our September workshop where you’ll mount your very own Staghorn Fern onto a rustic wooden board while enjoying a complimentary beverage.

Your workshop fee includes all materials necessary to create one staghorn fern mount, as well as hands-on assembly and care instructions.
