Growing Gardeners

Growing Gardeners

Introduce your little green thumbs to the world of gardening! The Growing Gardeners program introduces children to the fun of gardening while learning about (and playing with!) plants, food, and ecosystems.

Here are some of the fun things we do in a Growing Gardeners class:
• Tend NOBG’s Children’s Garden (planting, weeding, watering, harvesting…)
• Play garden games
• Harvest produce to make and try new food dishes
• Explore the garden with scavenger hunts
• Learn through fun science activities
• Create garden art
• Make new friends!

Age requirement: Children ages 6-9 welcome
Class fee: $17 per class. $14 per class if you register for 6 classes at once! *When paying in advance classes do not need to be used consecutively.
Class time: Classes are offered two Saturdays most months from 10am-noon.
For more information and to register, call (504) 483-9470 or e-mail nobgeducation@nocp.org.
