*The event has already taken place on this date: Tue, 12/19/2023
Meeting 4 times each month on Tuesdays from 4-5pm, this Organic Garden Club for kids 6+ years helps children learn about plot planning, companion planting, maintenance, harvesting, seed saving, composting, and activities that progress the garden forward. Garden Club gives the children an opportunity to become good stewards of the garden and realize the impact of their efforts. Every club session includes a harvest-prepared treat so they can taste the goodness that comes from the garden.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

Children age 6+ are welcome!

Organic Gardening is proven to have a positive, grounding impact on mood and brain chemistry for all ages, but especially for children. Working in the garden helps kids grow & expand in so many ways!

Children practice and hone fine motor skills; use their five senses to learn about their environment; get excited about food and making healthy, nutritious choices; feel connected to a larger picture and purpose in life. When you grow your own food, you are more connected to it, and children are more apt to eat things they’ve grown in the garden.

In Organic Garden Club, children learn about plot planning, companion planting, maintenance, harvesting, seed saving, composting, and activities that progress the garden forward. Garden Club gives the children an opportunity to become good stewards of the garden and realize the impact of their efforts. Every club session will include a harvest-culinary-prepared treat so they can taste the goodness that comes from the garden.

Our Organic & Edible Garden is a wonderful way to teach the community about how gardening in a small space can be quite abundant. The garden hosts several varieties of organic fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables, and is maintained by Craft Collective and super-gardener and educator Mia Vaughnes, of Good Neighbor Gardens.

Drop-ins are welcome.

Sibling & Military discounts.
