To continuously and consistently provide innovative and diverse horticultural information to the gardening public.
Second Saturday at the Garden!
This educational series will host a new gardening topic each month in the classroom. Our workshops focus on adults, school garden educators and school garden volunteers wanting to learn more and gain confidence in gardening skills. We provide an educational, plant or garden related movie in the back of the classroom for up to 25 children, ages 3 and up, to engage them while parents are learning from Master Gardeners. Popcorn is provided for our children attendees, we ask kids to bring their own water bottle with them. When registering, please let us know how many children will be attending with you. Hands-on gardening activity for the entire family is coordinated after the class!
Parents: Please have children wear close-toed shoes, hat and sunscreen and bring a water bottle.
