Children’s Garden

 

Bring the kids and join Master Gardeners for the Children’s Garden, each Thursday morning, 10:30 – 11:30, starting March 20 and continuing through June 12, at the Fair Oaks Retirement Apartments, 1950 Lattimore St. (map).

 

The children’s garden invites parents and their children to learn about gardening through planting, maintaining and harvesting vegetables and herbs.  Our children’s garden is unique since we share the garden with Fairoaks, a senior independent living community.  It’s a wonderful opportunity for children and seniors to experience a growing garden together.

New students are welcome.   No registration is required and it’s free.

Please note: In case of rain, the group will not meet.
