Summer Classes at the Garden
For 2- and 3-year-olds with a caregiver
Learn about the wonders of gardening with your two- or three-year-old during this active hands-on program. Our youngest gardeners work with their adult partner to tend to their garden plots, sing songs, taste new foods, and create nature crafts.
Consistent attendance of one adult per child is required. Fee includes one adult and one child. No infants or older siblings, please.
We recommend that first-time gardeners and early twos choose the 9 a.m. one-hour class section.
