POSTPONED! Kids in the Garden: Seed Starting FAMILY PROGRAM IN-PERSON WORKSHOP

  • Saturday, March 19, 2022, 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM

POSTPONED TILL SATURDAY, APRIL 2nd

As adults get excited to procure the seeds for Spring gardening, kids can share in the gardening spirit by starting some seeds of their own! Sign up for a hands-on lesson about seeds, and caring for growing seedlings. Each child will be able to bring home a 6 pack to care for and eventually transplant into a container or in-ground garden. This will be geared for children 6-12, but can accommodate older or younger. Happening simultaneously as the CCE Seed Swap event!  Please note: this is not a drop-off class, we expect children to attend with their caregiver so they can learn, together.
