Your connection to gardening may have come from a childhood memory of planting with your parents, grandparents, or another special mentor and these workshops offer a gardening time to share together.
If you’re feeling stuck indoors with the summer gardening doldrums, what to do inside? Connect your child with nature in a new series of gardening workshops designed especially for kids. Easy, yet educational garden projects can be completed indoors in a fun, informal way, especially for youngsters. This group of four different workshops are the key to an indoor summer activity, and a great opportunity to create in the cool indoors!
Love succulents? Explore their architectural shapes and extreme variety along with your child to make all kinds of creative combinations. For this workshop, included are a simple terracotta pot, soil, and gravel, of course – but the real fun begins with choices of up to 8 two-inch starter succulents from our selection in our greenhouse – and then the chance to accessorize with branches, mosses, and stones to make the creation unique!
Later workshops include creating fairy and miniature gardens- making small custom worlds; a child’s first pot of herbs-learning to appreciate their unique scents and flavors; and finally rolling seed balls to grow Texas wildflowers- where we’ll have fun, maybe get a little messy, and learn about this easy way to make an impact on the butterflies and wildlife we love.
The workshops are open to kids ages 5- 10, and there’s room for you and your little gardener to share these experiences with us. We’ll be here to guide you all along the way. See all the details and register online.
Help a child learn to start growing through these easy classes, and grow their interest in gardening.
