The Children’s Gardening Program offers the perfect way for kids to get outside and get their hands dirty. Guided by instructors, children plant, tend, and harvest fresh vegetables and herbs, and learn about topics from pollination to composting. The program takes place in the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden, centerpiece of the future Edible Academy. Each gardening season offers unique and engaging activities customized for kids ages 3–12. Register for one or all three seasons, and come grow with us!
