Oozing, bubbling and exploding - pumpkins aren't just for little ones. Middle school students experiment and enjoy the fall garden harvest during this Saturday morning program. The Yurt Yard will get its winter makeover with students helping to replant and put garden areas to bed for the winter. There will be tasty treats to make as well as plants to share!

This is a drop-off program where parents are not required to stay. Proper paperwork must be completed in order for students to participate in the program. Paperwork is sent to participants prior to the program and collected at the program.
