Are you looking for a fun and interactive way for your student to learn more about gardening? Then our new gardening workshop, "Green Thumb Gardeners" is for you!

Weekly classes are held on Wednesdays from 12:30 pm -2:00 pm. Pack a lunch to eat during the first thirty minutes with your friends in the garden. After lunch, we'll have gardening lessons and activities.
