|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 1:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until August 27, 2019

Edible Garden Sprouts
Tuesdays, 1 – 2pm

Edible Garden Sprouts programs introduce children and their favorite adult to the world of plants and gardening. Children who grow their own food are more likely to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Each program includes time in the children’s garden. Our mini gardeners will learn about the process of gardening, by planting seeds, maintaining their young plants, and harvesting vegetables.
$10 members, $15 non-members. (Fee is for the child only).
