Gardening for Families
Summer Gardening Fun for Families
Children who like to dig in the dirt and plant things have a special place reserved for them to grow at the Community Organic Garden on our campus.
You and your children are invited to join other families in the enriching experience of growing food together. Accompany UM-D student interpreters to learn tips and techniques involved in sowing, tending, and harvesting organically grown vegetables. We’ll also have fun exploring soil, worms, composting, garden creatures, and pollination at the beautiful and interesting Community Organic Garden on the UM-D campus.
This year's program will be coordinated by Master Gardener, Sarah Jorgensen and former Natural Areas Fellow, Mary Fastiggi.
The program fee is $35 per child. One adult guardian must attend each session with their registered children. This program is for children 6-8 years of age and their parent.
Registration is required, follow this link. The deadline for registration is May 15. Please register as early as possible so we know how many families to plan for.
This year we will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM on the following dates:
May 22 (Planting and Introductions); June 5, 19, 26; July 10, 24; August 7, 21 and September 4 (Harvest Day and BBQ).
