Children’s Gardening Program

There is still time to register your child for the Children’s Gardening Program at the New York Botanical Garden. Briana and I had the chance to preview the garden recently, and she loved it!

Kids will love digging in the dirt and help plant their own garden, while at the same time learning about eating healthy! Who knows, they might be able to teach mom and dad a thing or two after their experience!

Here is the scoop:

Each gardening season offers unique and engaging activities.
Register for spring, summer, fall, or all three! The programs run
rain or shine, and regular attendance is required.

Registration Begins February 1
