This inside garden provides a place for safe, meaningful play and discovery as children of all ages and abilities explore the wonders of the plant world and the importance of eating healthy. Visitors are able to plant, dig, build, observe, dream, explore, touch, smell and listen as they engage in both free play and structured learning. Regular nutrition/food-themed hands-on programming will take place each Saturday in the Family Garden anytime between 11am-1pm. See the schedule below for our upcoming offerings. While activities are best aligned for children ages 4-10, caregivers of our youngest learners are encouraged to assist with creations! Included with paid admission and membership!
