Summer Weekly Children's Garden
Ages 5 - 11
Grow bushels of produce, kinship, and garden skills! Together with a garden partner, you will receive your very own kid-sized Arboretum garden plot to sow, tend, and harvest all summer long. Each week, creative activities, projects, and recipes change as your gardens come to life. Lessons from the classroom are integrated outside and observed in your garden filled with flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Make snacks together in the kitchen using produce and herbs picked from our gardens!
