Junior Garden: Our Outdoor Classroom
Our garden is an outdoor classroom — a live exhibit of so much that nature provides. An appreciation, an awareness and respect for the natural world, is an integral part of this hands on program. Gardens teach meaningful work — so much to do and observe each season. Children cooperate on real tasks with tangible and tasty outcomes.
Program Details – Program is cancelled for 2021. The garden space will be used to grow fresh vegetables for local food banks.
