Tailored to our youngest gardeners (ages 2 and 3), we invite you to connect with your little one to explore the wonder of nature through hands-on work and play in the garden, in Garden Buds. Together, you'll harvest garden produce, create botanical crafts, and share stories and songs.

Each child must be accompanied by only one adult. Please, no siblings, unless you have a second adult to accompany. This program is all outdoors and masks are required for all participants.

Your registrations supports Queens Botanical Garden, the place where people, plants, and cultures meet! QBG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
