Family Gardening Saturdays

Kids of all ages and their adult guardians are invited to help water, plant seeds, harvest herbs and veggies, and much more! Observe the many helpful insects in the garden, get your hands in the soil and use all of your senses to investigate everything growing in the garden. Lemonade provided!

Each Saturday session is an hour in length. Please dress comfortably for light gardening and for the weather. All participants are encouraged to wear a hat and sunblock. You may also wish to bring a filled water bottle with you.

Programs will continue in light rain. If the forecast is for especially inclement weather, and they have to cancel, you will be notified by 8:30am that morning.

Please feel free call or email education@thehort.org if you have any questions.
