Open Garden Day Activities

Children and their parents looking for hands-on ways to learn, create, and have fun inspire our Open Garden Day volunteers to offer programs that do just that.

This FREE monthly children’s event includes a variety of activities:

  • Planting seeds, veggies or ornamentals into pots so children can continue to grow them at home.
  • Creating a “nature theme” craft project with materials that are provided.
  • 30-40 minute hands-on lesson that focuses on a single topic each month.

Previous lessons have included making a worm farm, putting together a compost bin, learning about the importance of butterflies, and making a feeder to attract pollinators.
