Youth Classes & Workshops

boyingarden.jpg"Children love things that grow. That is probably why few toys can ever hold their attention as long as a garden will. Everything about a garden appeals to them. Planting a seed is a privilege they are ready to fight for, and day after day they will come back to see if it has begun to sprout. Watching a bud unfold is another experience that fills them with wonderment. It is no exaggeration to say that the youngster who does not have his own garden or flower box, or just a single flowerpot, is being deprived of one of childhood's most treasured possessions."

--Dorothy Edwards Shuttlesworth, "Exploring Nature with Your Child", published in 1952.

 

 

Gardening isn't just for adults! The Garden invites children and families to engage their natural curiosity and discover the intriguing world of plants, science, nature, art, and culture. We are constantly developing our program offerings for youth, below is a listing of what's coming up, but if you'd like to partner with us in combatting "Nature Deficit Disorder" contact us today.

Join us as we work outside in the Youth garden to celebrate Take A Child Outside week. Get your hands dirty as we dig for potatoes, harvest some vegetables and empty the compost bin. Even now as the garden is winding down there is still work to be done. See what is still growing and learn about composting for the garden next spring. A snack will be provided and well finish with a garden-inspired craft.
