Market Day is one of the highlights of the summer season in the Children’s Garden. The kids look forward to the event all summer, harvesting crops from their plots and creating homemade treats to trade at market stands. This year’s selection included products that were delicious (beet brownies) and practical (botanical bug repellant made from coconut and citronella oil tossed with flower petals).

Enjoy a peek at the festivities. And don’t forget, registration for the fall session of Children’s Garden Classes begins today.

Greta Pemberton is BBG's manager of Children’s and Youth Programs.
