Cement pot workshop at Rancho Vista

What could possibly make you happier than being surrounded by succulents and having a nice morning learning some DIY? Well, a lot of things but this was super fun and I highly recommend it! Christie, from Madpotters, hosted an awesome workshop at Rancho Vista in which she taught us how to make super smooth cement pots ❤ Our ticket price included all materials and we started by choosing one of three shades of grey cement. The session then came with a tour of the nursery, which really is so darling, and we got to pick out a succulent and a top dressing kit to complete our project!
