Veggie Gardening for Kids

from 9:00AM to 12:30PM
Lil' Sprouts Workshop (children ages 5 to 10 only)
Oh, the things you'll grow! This workshop is a great introduction to gardening for your young ones with a green thumb. Kids will learn about backyard ecosystems and learn to make helpful garden observations. We will work and play while planting, nurturing, and harvesting in the organic demonstration vegetable garden at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. Children (K-5th grade) of any level of gardening experience are welcome to attend.
The gardens are beautiful and there are so many opportunities awaiting a young gardener!
