Kids will unplug and recharge in the garden. We’ll have them chasing bugs, planting seeds, harvesting veggies and learning about the natural world in their own backyard. Weekend programs are offered for the entire family to connect with urban wildlife including a Garden Sleepover, Sprout Club, Halloween Howl, Harvest Day and Earth Day. Sign up for our Free Garden Enews Today!
