Kid’s Garden Club

It’s good to get their green thumb early. This fun summer series teaches kids – from kindergarten through 6th grade – the basics of gardening, and how to care for the natural world around us. Children will learn about plants, birds, butterflies, bugs and more, and tend to their very own garden bed all summer long.

Kid’s Garden Club meets on Wednesday evenings (unless otherwise noted), beginning June 5 from 6:30-7:30 PM. Registration fee is $40 and includes a Kid’s Club t-shirt.

Registration is limited, so sign-up early. Registration forms can be turned in to the Courtesy Desk at Wannemaker’s Home and Garden or emailed to headcashier@wannemakers.com. For more information, please contact Barbara at barbarac@wannemakers.com.
