Family Gardening (8 years of age and up)

Garden Lecture Series

Gardening as a family is fun!  Research shows that spending time outdoors is great for your health.  Spending time as a family planting and growing plants encourages both family interaction and time outside.  This is hands on, where we can talk about how to grow plants from seed and transplanting those seedlings into the garden.  Once in the garden, those plants need care and we’ll talk about that care.  Each attendee will leave with a plant they have started in class.  There will be a $5 materials fee for each attendee.
