Event Details

When this event is sold out, we will still take your registration here for our wait list.  If there is enough interest, we will schedule a second group of sessions and notify you of the details.  

This event includes three Saturday sessions, and will be held on March 24, March 31 and April 7 from 10 am-12 pm at the greenhouse.  

Each participant will attend all three sessions. Classes will be limited to 20 students ages 5 and up.  

At our first class, students will plant a variety of vegetables from scraps that are usually thrown away i.e. sweet potato, celery bottom, pineapple top, avocado pit, etc.  They will learn about seeds (and where to find them!) and the different types of roots that plants have. 

In the second class, we will read The Diary of a Worm, students will learn about composting and will make their own composting bin to take home.  They will also check on the progress of the previous week’s plantings. 

Our final class will tie it all together and we hope to send the children home with a variety of interesting plants, a notebook that they have compiled and an appreciation for our earth’s resources and how to help protect them.
