    Herbs & Spices
    This month, Growing Gardeners travel to exotic lands and learn about different cultures through scent and flavor. Join us as we explore the Botanical Garden’s Aromatic Garden, plant herbs, cook up some delicious treats, and dive into the wondrous world of herbs and spices!
    There’s so much to do in the Botanical Garden, and we would love to help your child do it all. Classes cost $17 each, but are $14 when you register for six classes (three months) at one time.
