Out-of-School Programs

Every day at the Garden, kids and teens can embark on an exciting adventure—the adventure of discovering the world of plants.

Across the Garden and in two gardens designed especially for kids, the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden and the Ruth Rea Howell Vegetable Garden, hands-on activities introduce youths of all ages to the thrill of science exploration and of seeing what seeds and soil can become.
