This five week course is the class for your homeschool student! Together we will explore all aspects of a vegetable garden from planning the garden to making their plate beautiful with vegetables. Each week's class will consist of time in the garden and activities from the Junior Master Gardening program, "Learn, Grow, Eat and Go!"

This drop-off class is for homeschool students ages 8–11. Registration includes the five classes and materials needed. Registration for individual weeks is not available.

$60.00 for Arboretum members, $75.00 for nonmembers.
Although we understand that unexpected things happen, cancellations made less than 1 week prior to first class will not receive a refund.
