“Sprouts” is a program for preschoolers that introduces children to the basics of gardening. Participants will have the opportunity to get outside and learn about plants while helping to grow their own vegetables and flowers in The Arboretum’s Children’s Garden.
Kids will discover the wonder of worms and dirt, edible flowers, and food that comes from the earth — all in a space that has been tailored just for them. Parents are welcome to participate in the program with their children.
