Edible Garden Sprouts
Tuesdays, 1 – 2:30pm

Children (and their favorite
adult) are invited to dig in and help tend
their very own garden plot in the new
Edible Garden. Start with seeds and help
them grow and thrive! Each gardening
season is packed full of activities: planting,
watering, grooming and harvesting produce.
Learn what to plant each season and take
the skills you learned in Tyler’s garden back
to your own. For the full experience, register
for the entire series and see how your plants
develop over the course of the season.
$10 members, $15 non-members
(Fee is for the child only)
