About this event

The Horticultural Society of New York presents:

Family Gardening with The Hort

Kids of all ages and their adult guardians - come join us in the garden on Saturdays! Help us to water, plant seeds, harvest herbs and veggies, and much more! We'll observe the many helpful insects in our garden, get our hands in the soil and use all of our senses to investigate everything growing in the garden.

Lemonade provided!

When:

Saturdays in July and August 11:30am

Where:

Please meet us outside The Hort Greenhouse, located within Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park. Our address is 679 Riverside Dr. NY, NY 10018. Pedestrian entrances at 145th and 138th St. Please note that there is no public parking available within Riverbank State Park .

What to expect:

Each Saturday session is an hour in length. We ask that you and your child are dress comfortably for light gardening and for the weather. We encourage all participants to wear a hat and sunblock. You may also wish to bring a filled water bottle with you.

Please note that our activities are for the whole family. This is not a drop-off program.

Every Saturday will be unique, depending on what is ready to be watered or planted or harvested in the garden, so please join us for as many Saturdays as you’d like! Registration is free.

Weather:

Programs will continue in light rain. If the forecast is for especially inclement weather, and we have to cancel, we will notify you by 8:30am that morning.

Questions?

Please feel free to contact us at education@thehort.org or at 917-902-3940 if you have any questions.

We look forward to exploring and learning with you and your family this summer!
