Junior Garden Club

Gardening gives children a chance to learn an important life skill, one that is often overlooked in standard school curriculums. Gardening is also a great way to teach environmental awareness by exploring the workings of nature. With our Junior Garden Club,

we create opportunities for kids to learn and grow through gardening and engaging their natural curiosity and wonder.  


The Junior Garden Club exposes kids to a variety of fruits and vegetables and encourages taste testing straight from the ground. Kids will learn how to plant their own garden, choose which veggies to plant and learn the basics from prepping the soil to planting seeds and watering. 


Kids will learn how to grow food in small spaces and use gardening and food activities to support learning objectives. From planting a tiny seed to making a fresh salad, our Junior Garden Club connects children to food and their environment.


What is the Junior Garden Club?

The Junior Garden Club runs from March to October, 2022. Throughout the course of the club, we will be providing instructions on how to plant, grow and harvest a garden, along with hands on crafts and recipe ideas. Your child will choose which vegetables and fruits they want to plant, as well as the activities they want to partake in. The activities are tailored for kids ages 8–12, however, younger kids are welcome to join, but may require additional support from an adult.

We will post new activities every week, so be sure to check this page frequently!
