Beginning Gardening workshops for Youth and Families

Thinking about starting a garden but have a black thumb? Want to encourage an interest in gardening with your children? Kids sessions on how to start a garden will be offered with this Beginning Gardening Series. These workshops are designed to interest kids in gardening, but will offer some basic information for beginning parent gardeners as well. The workshops are targeted for 5-12 year olds.
