Sure! We cannot guarantee they can sit in the planting area during the event, that will be dependent on the seating available that evening and the instructors running the event. Your friend is free to accompany you to the venue but we do ask that they sit at the bar as to not disturb the other gardeners. Space is limited at the events and we want to make sure everyone who purchased a ticket has as much space as they need.
There will be a 15-20 minute break in the middle of the event, which is a great time to mingle with guests at the bar, or for guests who are not planting to go through the room and admire the gardens-in-progress!
