The large quarters is home to an indoor plant nursery, a flower shop, a licensed cafe, a cheese cave, a gift shop and a dynamic workshop studio.

We are always seeking workshop collaborations to bring skill-sharing and fresh thinking to our community.

Awesome workshop. Great vibe and teacher was fantastic and knowledgeable. Clear and easy to follow instructions. Also picked up so great tips on how to care for plants in general. Highly recommend.

Our Kokedama class at Soul Pantry was so much fun and such great value for money! We made a beautiful kokedama birds nest fern to take home and had a few laughs along the way with a fantastic teacher and some lovely fellow workshoppers. Would do it again. Thanks for a great morning!

Teacher was good. Not sure the price was worth it. It would be good if we got to take home the left-over ingredients/soil.

I really enjoyed the desert terrarium class at Soul pantry. The teacher was wonderful, funny and had a true passion for plants, which showed during the making process. The plants were of high quality and the step by step creation process was made easy to follow. The class was held in a large indoor space that had a cafe, as well as a plant and gift shop. I will be back!

I've always liked the look of the classes at Soul Pantry, so it was great to be able to book on to one.

Patricia was an excellent teacher. She shared a lot of information about the beautiful blooms we were working with and her instruction was easy to follow.

Soul Pantry is a large undercover airy building. Easy to find but on a week day parking is limited. Soul Pantry is within a busy business area.
The instructor today was Patty. Patty was a delight. Easy to listen to. Helpful with a positive attitude. There were no mistakes just mishaps that can be corrected.
The plants supplied were selected by Patty and looked lovely cocooned in their ball at the end of class.
Thank you Patty for an enjoyable morning. :)
