Garden Programs

The Lodge at Woodloch has always been known for its focus on nature. Regular garden workshops are an integral part of the activities calendar including cultural practices and seasonal tips and suggestions for home gardens. The Lodge at Woodloch gives guests the opportunity to "get their hands dirty" and learn about where and how food is sourced - a natural fit with the spa's philosophy of personal awakening.

Below is a sampling of garden classes that may be offered at The Lodge at Woodloch and evolve throughout the seasons. Please reference our class & activity schedules for the most current garden classes, dates, and times.
