Family Garden Club
Registration open now!
Our Family Garden Club provides gardening workshops on Saturday mornings from 9:30-11:30am. These workshops are a great opportunity for children to learn the skills necessary to grow their own vegetables, as well as develop a connection with nature and an appreciation of healthy foods. This year the Club will meet on April 5, May 3, June 7, and June 21.
Group Exploration Programs
Bring your student, scout or youth group to the Gardens, where they can explore our 180 acres of designed gardens and natural habitats. These guided programs enable school-aged children to make their own discoveries about our natural world. Programs are available Monday through Friday during the months of April through November. Our standard, 1.5-hour program includes a tour of selected areas of the Gardens and your choice of activity or educational focus.
