Summer Sprouts Garden Camp

A GARDEN TO TABLE EXPERIENCE FOR FAMILIES

Enjoy the summer sunshine while learning how to grow and cook local food. Each week we will explore a different part of the plant life cycle and share a snack prepared from the garden! To register submit a permission form (use garden specific links below). The first 25 registrations will be accepted. We hope to see your family in the garden!

  • Programs are free and open to all interested youth ages 6-12
  • Each child must be accompanied by an adult and register with a signed permission form
  • Programs will be cancelled in the case of inclement weather (i.e. excessive heat, wind advisory, heavy rain, lightning, etc.)
  • We ask that each child/adult pair commit to attending at least six sessions.
