April in Paris

Of course we will visit the Eiffel Tower, and view the stunning work of Monet at the Louvre. We’ll go back in time to learn about Marie Antoinette’s final days. No visit to France is complete without Jacques Pepin, Martha Stewart, and Pete Evans of Moveable Feast serving up delectable treats.
Rise and Shine
April 13 & April 14Our Create Chefs have put together the ultimate "Breakfast of Champions” menu: French Toast, Grits, Huevos Rancheros, and more. Ellie Krieger, Kevin Belton, and George Hirsch understand that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Your day will be off to a great start!
Darley’s Earth Day

Darley’s taking in the beauty of Martinique’s beaches and rainforests, hiking through Hong Kong, and traveling down Route 66 to a prairie. Who better than a world traveler to show us the beauty all over the world?
April 27 & April 28If you love the beauty and durability of wood furniture, this marathon is for you. Woodworkers Tom McLaughlin, Scott Phillips, and Eric Gorges will take you through the easy steps to transform a piece of wood into a practical and useful piece of furniture for your home. The bookstands, tables, and cabinets that you create will become heirlooms for generations to come.
On the Farm
