Children's Gardening Program


Hands-on gardening is the perfect way for kids to get outside and get their hands dirty. Guided by instructors, kids plant, tend, and harvest fresh produce; prepare and taste the fruits of their labor; and enjoy the beautiful natural setting of the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden.

Each gardening season offers unique and engaging activities.
Register for spring, summer, fall, or all three! The programs run
rain or shine, and regular attendance is required. Come grow with us!

Registration Begins on February 3, 2014
