Children’s Vegetable Garden Opens March 3rd

THE GARDEN OPENS FOR THE SEASON
Come out starting Monday March 3, 2014 from 3:30pm – 4:30pm. The garden will run for 10 consecutive Mondays (3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24, 3/31, 4/7, 4/14, 4/21, 4/28, and 5/5).

Learn how to garden using your five senses.  Come help plant, water, fertilize, pick and eat the produce grown in the garden.  There is no charge to participate in this program, but donations are welcome.

Since 1993, children have enjoyed planting, growing, and eating vegetables at the Garden.  For many children, these sun-filled, tasty experiences teach children that healthy, delicious food comes from the earth and is possible with the magic of seed, soil, sun, water, and just a little hard work.  Adults also share in the fun. Salsa gardens, vegetable soup, pizza gardens, and gardens from around the world have resulted in a lifelong love of plants and all they have to offer.

GRADES: Kindergarten-5th grade
