Lil' Sprouts Workshop (children ages 8 to 10 only)
with MCBG Lead Gardener Jaime Jensen

This 1-day, 2-hour 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 ages 8 to 10 of any level of gardening experience are welcome to attend.  

Workshop instructor, Jaime Jensen is a passionate advocate for backyard vegetable gardening, delicious fresh meals, food preservation, and health education. She has a taught food literacy to under-served urban youth and managed food production for a local farm-to-table garden and restaurant. She loves teaching and learning about all of the unique relationships that take place between plants, animals, insects, fungus, soil, minerals, water, air, and sunshine. When she is not in the garden, Jaime is cooking fresh, locally grown, organic meals, or illustrating books and painting murals.
